Well, The thing kept cutting out so I investigated it more. The tank has about a half inch of dirt and rust or something on the bottom. It plugs the tank nipple and you ant goin anywhere

I had the same gas tank problem with my 1974 SS/16. Mine was full of rust and when I tried to clean it out I also found out that it was full of pin holes. Couldn't find a used tank at a decent price that didn't still need cleaning or repair, so I ended up making my own tank out of some sheet aluminum. I also had to replace the gas line from the tank to the carburetor and clean out the carburetor to get it running right. Good luck.

Austin, very nice score. Since I don't live in a snow belt, I would be very happy with the earthcavator. Have a great time with it.
