Rust in gas tank

Recommended Posts

I have rust in my Simplicity's gas tank. I have cleaned it as well as I can, but the rust returns around the fill hole. I know there used to be, several years ago, a liquid sealer made for motorcycles that would seal leaking and rusted tanks, but I can't find anything like it now. Does anyone know of anything like this to use? My outboard tank could use this too. Thanks!

If you live near any motorcycle dealer the pobably carry a product called kreme(sp?) I `m not sure of the spelling it`s a 2 step process and it lines the tank with a ceramic-like coating. I have used it on vintage mx bikes I have restored with metal tanks and it works well;)JBlack

I had 2 tanks sealed at a local radiator shop, they both needed some miner seem repairs and with the sealer include it cost around $35 per tank, quite a bit cheaper than new tanks....^

Thanks guys. The por15 looks like the way to go. Does anyone know how big a tank the utility and cycle kit will do? I need to do my Simplicity tank and my 3 gal. outboard tank.

      folowing  this from a link at the downloads.  I just rescued an AC 920 with the lambodini diesel. I can' t download  yet .  Where did you find the PDF copy you posted. . I would like to figure out how to adjust the injection pump. 
      I assume it's a bosche, correct

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
