7100 series gas tank

Recommended Posts


Could someone please measure the diameter of the hole in the bottom of a 7100 series Simplicity gas tank? The hole that the bushing fits into. I need to repair a tank and do not have one handy to measure. Thanks in advance. Gary

1/2" it is. The hole had been enlarged to approx. 3/4" by someone in the past. I found an old black plastic discharge chute deflector from a push mower, drilled a 1/2" hole & epoxied to bottom of tank with JB weld epoxy. The epoxy says it can withstand gasoline and cures in one hour. I waited approx. 2 hours, pushed in the bushing and fitting, put gasoline in tank and it did not leak. Will check again tomorrow. Gary

      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!😁
