Fuel Tank

Recommended Posts


I have a Allis 808 a.k.a. Simplicity 6008. The rubber fuel line is hard as a rock and I need to replace it. In order to do that I have to remove the fuel tank which is concealed under the dash. If someone has already done this I would like their advice on the simplest way to remove the fuel tank. Thanks.

You need to remove the steering wheel and the plastic end of the throttle control. Then remove the two bolts in front of the tower that bolt the upper to the lower, and also remove the two hex head screws that bolt upper to lower on the dash. You can then carefully lift the top of the tower off. Be careful of the wires on the ignition switch and on the ammeter, they may need to be unhooked. Once the top of the tower is off, the gas tank lifts out. There are two thick rubber pads under the tank that cushion it and keep it tight and from rattling. Note the location of these and be sure to get them back in right when re-assembling, or else you will have a loose gas tank.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
