    Kreem tank sealer works very well, but is only as good as your procedure in appying it.
    Ethenol has no effect on Kreem.
    For large tanks, we buy the quarts or gallons. You can buy muratic acid in gallons at your local pool and spa store. MEK can be found at Sherwin Williams.
    If you TAKE THE PROPER TIME and follow procedure youu will have no further problems with your coated tank. We have several tanks coated 15 - 20 years ago.
    The most amasing example is the tank on my Ford 9N:
    When I got to the step of etching / rust removal with acid, the bottom of the tank not only leaked like a sieve; it LOOKED like a sieve!! I continued on and coated the tank and that was over 15 years ago. The lining still looks and works like new.
    Last winter I made 2- 21 gallon tanks for a forklift. I decided to line them right off the bat while new. It took a better part of a day EACH to go through the proper steps. They turned out perfect!

I then washed it and flushed it with water and let it dry. I have never had rust return...

    It could be a cheap way out for you...
    Scott_VT - If I'm not mistaken, isn't that a picture of a Farmall Super A? My dad had both the cub and Super A and the picture you show is from the rear of a Super A, if my memory is correct.

    Great looking tractor. I miss the one my dad had. It was so easy to service, etc...

    Thanks for posting the pic.

    Good Evenin tcreeley,
    No problem, if you had a picture of those two tractors side by side, the Super A looks like its on steriods compared to the Cub !

    Thanks!!! I am going to call the Rad shop downtown on Monday and see what they can do on the tank. Overall it is just a little surface rust so it should be rather easy. No holes or flaking rust or anything.
    Thanks again!!!

    Scotty, I love that side view of the Super "A". Did you restore it? If yes, you did wonderful job.

    If I'm not mistaken the only difference between the "A" and Super "A" is the hydraulics. The "A" did not have hydraulics, correct? Roger

    Good Afternoon Roger,
    Yes I did and thanks so much on the compliment !

    Yes the only real difference is the touch control hydraulic unit under the fuel tank. I also rebuilt that unit durring the restore, it was about $100 for the rebuild kit from Case IH dealer...

    Here is a link to the thread I had started a number of years ago when I was restoring the Super A ...
