got a used lawnmower last fall. eventually got it working but it's got
a few issues.
the gas tank is sound but it apears that rust is developing inside the
tank and fouling the tanks screen. last fall I went and cleaned the
tank out as best as i could, and it apeared to rund fine.
today i tried to get it to run and the tank screen was plugged again.
anyone have some suggestions?
Tanks are cheap. Find a dealer and buy a new one. Your old one rusted
from being left out in the weather, so the machine may have other
issues and may not be worth investing too much more time on. if a new
tank gets you through this season you will have your money's worth. If
it goes a couple of years more you made a profit, so to speak. good
remove tank, insert a handfull of nice CLEAN gravel Agitate vibrate
toss aroiund for awhile. The gravel bouncing aroiund inside will clean
the tank! Now repeat with new gravel then empty and flush well with
garden hose.drain well, let sit fr day outside in sun .........
old friend does this cheap effective.
