Just want to add to FIRST DISCONNECT THE BATTERY!!! I've removed my hood a few times alone and the last time I did it slipped and caught the battery terminals and thus shorted out some wires. Hood removal is a long, tedious job. Removing all the parts -wiring, lights, doglegs, fuel line/bowl, et al, can take hours alone. Dennis Carpenter sells a new gas tank, p/n 9N-9002, for $235 and a gallon of alcohol resistant sealer for $35. EASTWOOD sells a Silver Cad paint close to the original tank cad finish so it's your tractor, your $$$, your call on which way to proceed. That doesn't include getting the old tank boiled and cleaned out -take to a reputable dealer. Some radiator shops will also do gas tanks.
