Hi All,

 

I just picked up this machine.  Hooked up my boat gas tank, cleaned the points and she fired right up.  Drove her around the yard.

There's a small hydro leak...should be an easy fix.

The biggest problem that I have is the gas tank is rusted out.  I've searching for a plastic tank that will fit.  Fun Fun

Welcome to GTT. Check out our Manuals Section for info that you need. Remember that they are mechanicly the same as the Ford LGTs of that era. Good Luck, Rick

Also, if I remove the steering box, is it rebuildable?

The steering box should be a Ross and similar to the Cub steering boxes. Yes, they are rebuildable.
