Is it a metal tank? They can be repaired easily, but probably just as cheap to buy one. By the time you go through the trouble to fix it, you could have bought a new one and had the lawn mowed. A product called POR, is a gas tank sealer and it works great.(metal only) Just follow the inst on the can and you will be all set. Hope this helps.

HOW DO I PREVENT AND GET RID OF CONDENSATION IN HADLIGHT ASSY


Condensation in a headlight assembly usually means a crack or split in the assembly somewhere.Remove the assembly and use a hair dryer to dry it out. Go along to an auto supply store and get some "seam seal" (not silicone) and a silicone based lubricant.Spread the seam seal around the join in the headlight assembly and let it dry up.This is usually overnight.Take the silicone lubricant and apply it to the rubber gasket around each light bulb.DO NOT get the lubricant on the bulbs. Replace the bulbs in the assembly.This should solve your problem. Good luck

I need a new gas tank for craftsman mower ltx1000 but I have no model number


It was probably made by poulan. A poulan dealer will have a cross reference and they can get you one.

My tb425cs leaks gas when it is running. It drips from the bottom of the gas tank.


Be sure to not overfill the tank. Just load it with gas up to the bottom of the neck and be positive you're not cross-threading the cap when twisting it on. If it only leaks when operating, see if there is fuel bubbling out through the vent(s) in the top of the cap or out from under it. Also wipe the tank clean and dry to be positive it is not leaking from a seam or crack in tank or around fuel lines. If leaking from cap, might have to replace as they do have an internal rubber seal that could have gotten dry or cracked. If it's from the tank seams or fuel lines replacement may be neccessary of either one or both.

My gas tank leaks if it gets over half a tank


sounds like a seam on the tank has either split or rusted away, better get to a garage...or keep it under 1/2 tank.

Gas tanks rupture on craftsman lawn tractors


2 of them, one is take it to craftsmen and see if they will fix it as a manufacturing defect, or you can replace the tank yourself. There is a putty that you can use, just go to the auto parts store and tell them what you need. Some of them can't be used on gas components so be careful or you will be right back in this mess, only with a bigger mess on your hands.
