sediment filter

Recommended Posts

The B-110 I'm re-doing has a lot of rust in the gas tank, much of which came out while sanding, but there is still a lot left. I'd like to rig a fairly course filter to catch the rust, for the first few tanks. Any one have any ideas how? I thought about getting one of the kohler canister filters and using it for a while, but those may be too restrictive for a gravity tank?

While you are at the farm store look into their sediment bowl filters. The Farmall/International tractors of the 1950 and 60's era used them. They are around $20 and would work good for what you want it to do.

The trick is to get as much rust knocked loose from the beginning and flush it out. Then coat the inside as described above. It will take a couple of seasons of use to slowly filter out the sediment and if you let it set more than a few weeks low on gas it will continue to rust without the coating. Been there, done that.;)

Get as much of the rust out as you can like everyone has mentioned. Then I run a clear pleated style of fuel filter, about 1 1/2 " long 1" or so around. Cheap, installs in the fuel line with two small hose clamps, works fine on my B-10's. When the filter is brown from rust change it out for a clear one. GregB

I take mine to a motorcycle repair shop for coating. Could buy a can @ NAPA if you want to coat your own or have a couple. Paid $25 for the last tank coating and think the can will run about that much.

Randy, I agree with what the others said about coating the inside of the tank. I just wanted to let you know that the 700s, like my 61 Wards, came from the factory with a sediment filter. This is a glass container that screws into the bottom of the tank, and the fuel line comes off that.
