Even though the guy told me it ran when i got it,i was surprised when it did start right up for me.He told me it had a tank leak and he wasn't lying.It leaks it about as fast as you put it in.So i pulled the tank today and WOW was it full of rust (glad it has a filter in the line).Now i have to decide if its worth cleaning and fixing or should i look for a replacement.

That's too bad a bout the tank but like you said the seller said it leaked , think some of the members used a tank coating kit so hope they will give you some suggestions on which way to go .

What size is the tank? I've got one off a Tecumseh H60 that looks about like yours, but it reeks old gas and full of junk. As far as I can tell, its solid, though. Its been inside all its life. I imagine a good electrolysis and/or sealer would straighten it out. It might be better to fix than yours. You can have it for the shipping: I can measure it for you.
If someone has a better one, go with them just because I'm assuming a lot about this tank. This could be a "last choice" resort.
