Man! YOU ARE NUTS if you think you found something Neat!  Like first post asked, what's the deal, an old tank on a hood, and not even fastened nice either. I don't see way to save any of that. MAYBE, the little saddles that tank set on, Maybe!  There was just an ad on here for a small tank like that I think. Check out for sale section.  You have disease and now going into Stage 4!  Saving it, ......still laughin  OK, I'm done, insight from the Dark Side again. :deadhorse:

You have to be a collector to appreciate the find, this is a rare accessory for the Bolens

A different tank just wont do if you collect this stuff and want an OEM accessory.

All this hup-to-do about a busted up tank on a old hood and nobody is saying what it is beside some kind of duster.  April fools is a ways off yet.  Practicing up?

OK.  So it is a Blitz Fog.  What does it do, drip diesel fuel or oil into the engine to make a fog as you run?  Or maybe just drips it on the hot muffler?  Tank ain't big enough to fog mosquitoes. I give up.  Next question.  :deadhorse:       :wallbanging:

Oh, lookee: We've got a set of twins separated at birth. Took 75 years to get them back together and they haven't figured it out yet.
