Leaking gas tank on LTZ1000 Craftsman lawn tractor
After smelling gas fumes in my garage I finally took the time to check out my sears lawn tractor gas tank. The tank
is seeping gas out of the seam. The tank number is 109202x
and the replacement tank is 184900. I had the small engine
shope order me a new tank(Cost of $26.56 plus tax). I went on line and see that this is a common problem with this type gas tank(looks like the replacement is made the same way).Did a search and came up with, http://en.allexperts.com/q/Small-Engines-Lawn-1746/f/Craftsman-LT1000-fuel-tank.htm Seems some had them fixed under a recall than ended 08/01........one guy had his fixed after warranty ran out by calling sears.
Why is there not a recall on this from sears???? I will be sending this info to sears ceo.......and the CPSC.
