    Default english made ford 3000

    Help! Hole in fuel tank, cannot find a replacement with a long enough fill neck. All of the tanks I have been able to find are for american built 3000's. Even my local dealer is unable to help. Anyone?

    I feel your pain. I had one of those versions too! Parts are a pain to find for it. How bad is the hole? Is it rusted or punctured?

    The hole is on the bottom of the tank, left of center and a little larger than the diameter of a pencil. I have also noticed that the metal is rather thin everywhere on the bottom of the tank. Some small pockets of rust, too.

    Mine had a generator that was different and took for ever to find an old dipstick they were different lengths and on the opposite side of the American. But filters, fenders, axle parts and such were the same. Everytime something failed, it was a shot in the dark as to weather the part was the same or not.

    post a pic of the machine front and side

    post the number on the trans bellhousings.. there will be 2-3 rows of stamped numbers.

    something don't add up here.

    the 3 cyl family of similar engines should have the dipstick all on the same side..
