Replacement Fuel Tanks

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know where I can purchase or find information on fuel tanks for a Simplicity 725, 101, and 3012? Has anyone converted to the newer plastics? My 101 and 3012 do not have fuel tanks and my 725 has leaking seams. Anyone ever reworked the seams?

Some suggested fuel tank replacement sources: Our site sponsors like Sandy Lake Implement, JJ Nemes, etc. Want ads in Simple Tractors. E-bay. Your local Simplicity dealer. "Anyone ever reworked the seams?" Yes, I repaired two of my tanks by re-soldering the seams where they leaked. Or, have a local radiator shop fix the leaks.

Dick I've tried repairing tanks with J-B Weld and other epoxy types and had some little success. If it's only the seams Roy's idea is spot-on. If you have major rust-thru spots on an old tank you might try soldering some new metal to the outside and then having the tank coated with the same stuff they repair motorcycle tanks with. One of those is trademarked as "Creeme" if I remember right. It's been a long time since I had any bike tanks coated so memory is a bit rusty. Larry

I just finished relining 3 tanks with the epoxy made by POR 15.I had no idea that this is a 3 step operation snd it ending costing over $60 for 1 pint of the epoxy and the remaider for the cleaning solution and the etching solution. It take 96 hours to dry but looks good so far. The directions seemed kind of vague and got different answers from the the suppliers I bought from.

I've done both for the tank on my '64 landlord. The solder worked for a while. I then used a plastic tank from a lawn boy commercial mower that fit right in with some minor mods. Only problem was that the fuel gage/cap would not work. Was a slight mis adjustment in the hood/tank hole, but not enough to be a problem. Part was about $12.00 as I recall-- but was many moons ago.

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time
