Hello, I am new to this forum I purchased a 3.6 HP for my 12 year old son I have no idea what year it is made by ( Firestone ) model #10752857 code #133-7-1075 stock # 10-a-111 the person I purchased it off said there was no spark when I got home to really look at it I noticed the fuel tank has little pin holes all over from inside rusting outward like blister's. The question is can I put a coat of fiberglass over entire tank to seal it ? Can I purchase some sealer that would do the job or try to braize it with some brass? can I purchase a new tank some where? Thank you for your time Paul
That is a 56-59 built by Scott/McCulloch.You may be able to find a used tank on ebay or maybe at www.aomci.org I believe the tank was the same over many years. I'm sure they can tell you over there.Otherwise one of the tank sealers might work.
thank you steelespick do you think fiber glassing over it will work ? I had seen a post about the rust issue and putting nut's and bolt's in it and shaking it around I could not believe all the rust that came out .thank you again paul
Thank you fleet admiral I am going to purchase the kit and post my reply. Does anyone know where I can get a colors for this year motor I want to repaint it when I am done back to specs i am not sure if the color on the motor is original or if it was repainted before.I have tried searching the web with no luck Thank you Paul
