So still plugging away on this plant #1 of 2.

Got a hoist and lifted the engine case off the base to better eval the gas tank and clean it.

I was able to get the hangers out intact, cant say the same about the tank. Swiss cheese comes to mind. I am really glad I did this, it would have leaked everywhere.....

Its gonna need either a ton of solder, or I will have to get a new one made.

I suspect the filler neck is brass as well as the pipe bung for the gas line conduit.

Figured folk would be curious as to "what's underneath it"

Contact John Wonat - I believe a Stak sponsor. You can send him your old tank, and he will build you a new one. he will transfer your fittings to the new tank. he does a great job, and you can't beat the service!!
