Looking good!!

I haven't followed the whole thread completely, but is there no way to buy a spare tank? Or try and get a similar second hand one at a lawnmower place that might have scrapped mowers/tractors?

Doubtful that I'll be able to find an original, which is what I want. There's probably some out there collecting dust but finding one might be a challenge. I haven't really spent much time looking yet though. I haven't checked with any dealers for scrap parts either but as I think about it just now, I think they must get rid of their junkers and clunkers about as fast as they get them cause I don't recall seeing any lawn mower bone-yards around here.

I've been having the same struggle with my old tractor, I've found ones identical except they're 1" wider than the tank straps... seems to be an oddball size (that's my luck). Been looking for 2 years...

If I haven't found one by the time I get it back together I'll stick something in there temporarily.
I've got a few old tanks around here and one of those will have to do until I find the right one or fix the one I broke.

Got the topside of the frame painted early this morning before the heat got too bad. Think I have enough paint left to do either the fenders or the running boards but not enuff for all so guess it's time to head into town and pick up another can or two.
