I just purchased a fuel tank for my 416S. It came attached to this:

Here's the tank. It's needs a bit of plastic welding, but is in better shape than the one I have.

I did get the engine to fire off, though briefly! May have a replacement for the Ford! WooHoo!!!!! I will have some parts for sale as I do not plan to get it running again!

Me too! Plus I have been wanting to get the Ford going again. Miss my foot pedal hydro!

I wonder how this tractor would work with an Eaton 11 & Peerless 2500 under it? I have an extra one of those!

I brought the tank and my little soldering/plastic welder in last night. Cut some strips off a piece of donor plastic, too. I just finished 'welding' the cracks back up. After a bit, I will test for leaks! Here's the pics.

Looks good Kenny. Did you re-enforce it with anything? I've never tried plastic welding, any tips/issues?

I just melted a good amount of 'new' plastic in there, spreading it around and blending it at the edges. Since it is a gas tank, I didn't want anything foreign in there!

Once it passes the leak test, you could rough up the surface near the crack and bridge/reinforce/coat with some fiberglass tape and some plastic weld. Just a thought.

The repairs look nice Kenny. Hope it holds another 40 years for you.

Looking good! Interesting that it looks to have the smaller front wheels off a 410 on it. When you decide to sell parts off what is left let me know because I need a few things.

Finally got it to stop the pin hole leaks! Bet I filled that thing 10 times!

It's hard to part it, but I haven't a use for two of these with one mower deck. The engine will go on my Ford. I'll keep the tires & wheels and the grille as it is better than mine. After that, I am unsure of what to keep. Probably the BGB. I need to look over the other one and see what it needs or what to swap. Send me a PM for the things you want.

Well, it runs well and drives out pretty good for not having a steering wheel! Even charges! Starts real quick too! The engine sounds very healthy. It is painted a light gray color leading me to believe it is a replacement block. The Ford will be happy!

... Probably the BGB...

BGB?  WTF does this mean? I have seen it used over the last few days and I have no clue to its meaning.

 

I'm just wondering if I should check to see if mine is missing. :rolling:

BGB= Bevel Gear Box! It's in the driveline of these units! These are NLA!
