Look around your area and see if you can find someone who can plastic weld it.
a guy brought his 76 TNT in to me and I had to have his done, because of weathering cracks.
cost him 20 bucks to have about 6 cracks fixed.
USE AUTO BODY CLOTH AND RESIN. HAVE USED IT ON MORE THAN ONE PLASTIC TANK. CLEAN AREA REAL GOOD AND ROUGH UP WITH 100 GRIT SAND PAPER AND PUT TWO LAYERS OF CLOTH AND RESIN USE A PAINT BRUSH TO WORK OUT THE AIR BUBBLES AND YOU WILL BE GOOD TO GO. CLOTH AD RESIN IS NOT AFFECTED BUY GAS AND OIL JUST MAKE SURE YOU GET IT CLEAN. BUY THE
WAY I LOVE THEM OLD DOO'S
thanks for the ideas.
someone has tried to weld it before i got it. but i will try to find someone else to give it a shot.
last year i patched just the cracked areas with pc7 but it failed over the summer, i will try covering the whole tank.
. IF YOUR SAYING THE WHOLE TANK IS CRACKED THEN YOU SHOULD TRY TO FIND A GOOD USED ONE. YOU DON'T SAY WHERE YOUR FROM BUT I KNOW WHERE I COULD GET A GOOD ONE FROM HERE IN NY OR YOU COULD TRY ALSSNOWMOBILE.COM THEY SHOULD BE ABLE TO HELP. WHAT REALLY SUCKS I THREW ONE OUT THAT I USED FOR MY WORKBENCH TANK, NOTHING WRONG WITH IT JUST GOT A DIFFERNT TYPE TANK.
Timing is everything.
I am located in nw pa.
I tried al's and central snowmobile last year and a local sled junkyard. i don't recall if it was that they didn't have them or they were too much $. like $100 plus my tank.
I also tried skidoo but they don't make them anymore.
i bought this sled as a basket case in the summer of 2002 and had it running for last winter. in the 80's i had a tnt(1974 i think) and am getting back into sledding now.
i have vintage tractors and am trying to get up to speed on the parts and info for vintage sleds.
thanks for the help.
I thought Dennis Kirk carried em but I checked the online catalog and nothing. I had a 73 Olmypic 340 10 years ago had a little leak and I put some kind of sealant on it but it was a real small leak. Keep that old sled going , I love bringing old machines back to life! Mine was given to me dead for 5 years, what an awesome feeling working on it and firing it up! (even though the old ones don't stay running for long before your wrenching em again !)
NO DOUBT ON THE FEELING OF BREATHING NEW LIFE INTO OLD IRON IT KEEPS MY OUT OF TROUBLE, AND USUALLY IN THE DOG HOUSE AT HOME BUT THAT'S ANOTHER STORY,GOTTA LOVE THEM OLD SLEDS EITHER WAY. JAM, LET ME KNOW WHAT KIND OF COIN YOU WANT TO SPEND I HAVE A SUPPLYIER LOCALLY THAT SHOULD BE ABLE TO FIX YOU UP CAN ALWAY UPS IT TO YA.
