Greetings,

This is a new forum for me. I'm hopeful I can find the info I need here.

 

I have an White Town& Country 112 hydro that has been faithfully serving my family since it was new.

 

I've been doing my best to keep the little guy going and have done pretty well so far.

 

I'm in need of a replacement fuel tank or perhaps any info regarding repair of the original.

 

If anyone who reads this post has any information which may be helpful, please respond.

 

Thank you.

Welcome. How bad is the fuel tank, i.e., is it just pinholes or are we talking dents and large holes?

 

There was a recent post about tank lining liquids, I'll go find the info.

Your tractor was probably made by Jacobsen i think identical to the jake chief also the ford 100/120 series, i'd ask an ebay seller if had a good tank they are always parting these out, joesoutdoorpower on this forum is one of the sellers, good luck

Welcome to GTT. Getting the tank repaired may be the simplest way so that you have the correct style to fit. There are quite afew different places for the fill neck and outflow fitting to be attached. Checkout our threads on this subject and our Manuals Section. When asking questions, pictures can help with the description. Good Luck, Rick

Thank you.

thats a rare tractor. I got a spare tank if you cant fix the original one. What would be best is to upload photos so we can see how bad the tank is. Also some pics of the tractor just for entertainment purposes. The White isn't a model you see often and is sought after but dont let anyone talk you into selling it.

I once had a Blue/White one and sold it too cheap! Never really liked it.  Jacobsen made those, shouldn't be hard to find one wouldn't think. Yeah, lets see some pictures.

:wave: Welcome to the forum! Sounds like the tractor has a history! Get us some pics so we can see what you are up against on that tank. Great folks waiting to help you here.

On uploading pics, check the link in my signature.

The tank would need to be in really bad shape not to be able to fix it with solder and thin patches. If your afraid to attempt it, send it to me and I'll fix it and get it right back to ya. Metal tanks are easy peasy to do, it's the plastic ones that are a pain!!

Welcome to GTT.

It would be great to see a photo or two of your tractor as I have never seen one.

I've never had luck repairing a gas tank but I don't claim to know what I'm doing either. If it is a minor leak and the tank itself isn't rotting from the inside out, it's probably fixable. However just keep in mind that if you do end up looking for another tank, there are two different filler offsets. The newer tractors ('68 and up) have access to the fuel tank through the hood. The filler on the newer tank is closer to center than the tanks used on older tractors without hood access.

As far as other options go, I did use a plastic tank from an 8-10hp horizontal-shaft Tecumseh on a 1967 Ford 100. It was the right size and I made straps to secure it to the factory brackets. Many walk behind snow blowers with a Tecumseh engine would probably have the same tank.

I'm a fan of the Town and Country tractors and have a few myself. I'd also like to see a few pictures.
