    Yep, I got The original.
    I had to replace the starter cup also on this engine, whenever I pulled the rope it pulled rough and jerky. Luckily I had one in my Spare Parts pile I swapped it with. Pulls smooth now.

    Got it JB Welded. I Kleaned it real good to. I made sure to Kapital K Klean it

    With brake Kleen and Kompressed air. And roughed it up some with a file.
    It covered the crack good and I got it built up around the area and underneath the tank seam.

    Cool, Good you roughed up the surfaced for the best bite to cling to,.

    Let it thoroughly cure, (I know you will) but if it is thick, I'd give it an extra day to cure fully.

    That's where mine had the crack under the tank seam. I added a brace to stiffen the mounting areas. Mine would wiggle (I found out by the crack.) But fixed that.

    How would you recommend bracing it? Since its on a Quantum, there isn't much room
    It only has 4 5/16 bolts holding it to the shroud and one 3/8 bolt holding it on the block...

    Guess your tank mounts very differently than mine did. Maybe you could cut some rubber strips to mount it on. I save old inner tubes for stuff like this.

    Re: Plastic tank fix

    I see, mounting it as you would should be all you need then, it seems well supported.
