Gas tanks B10 B12 etc.

Recommended Posts

Since its so hard to find a gas tank for the older acs and simpls. I found the right size, cut the fill hole out, ground the metal down to bare steel, pop rivited it back on on the end of the tank, and then patched the old hole. Use muriatic acid and 50/50 solider like they used for the old galvanized gutters. If you are a good body man you can't tell the differance. All and all with the hood on it looks good. samson

I have empty holes in the hood of both my AC 700 series tractors, but I use plastic tanks removed from other makes. I have thought of just using "bondo" to close the holes.

Mine has an engine mounted tank, and the former owner welded the hole shut and filledd it over with Bondo. Actually, I wish I could go back to the regular tank since it would be a little easier to check and fill that the sided mounted tank. It's just that $100.00 price tag. Steve

      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
