    Question Gas tank replacement for Craftsman (part #179115 )?

    The gas tank (part # 179115) on my Craftsman GT5000 has developed small cracks. I'm obviously concerned about the safety of this situation. Does anyone know of a replacement tank?

    Sears says it is no longer available so it is now time to do an on-line search or a walk around through your local mower grave yard to try to find a replacement.

    You are good. I could not find anything on the sears website except "not available" with nothing superseding it.

    I just went threw the same thing not avalible I did a search and found that the same tank is in the huaqvarna which is what I have both are the same I finally found one on ebay guy had 2 with about 20 people watching so I bought price was outragous anyway I still have my tank mine was cracked where the gas gauge is on the side of the fenderleft hand side. I looked at a lot of videos about plastic repair and the only thing I see that would work is I think is sold at Eastwood is PR51 . There is a youtube video, you will lose your gas gage though.
