My gas tank on my 416s started leaking on the bottom side where the seam is ,is there any way to seal a plastic gas tank. JB weld didn't work and would like to have the orginal tank on the mower.8C

I'm not sure if this fix will work.


A tire valve assembly, I got the idea from Rod Hubbard


Ready for the fuel tank

Or, you could try an adhesive called "Seal-All". It is a gas proof (so far, for about a year) contact adhesive. Use a similar material plastic patch and glue it to the bottom of the tank. I glued a sheetmetal patch on my metal tank and it is staying for this season, so far, I plan to line the tank innards over the winter, and that will be permanent
