Cool, I'm fixing to put my Z up on the wheel dolleys I do every winter. So I can move it around easy as I do my winter service, clean & wax.

just went thru this on an edger that was 20 - 25 years old. The replacement tank was about $25. Hardly worth messing fixing the old one. Where there is one crack there will be more coming if you don't have them already.

seems like every time I fix something like that with JB weld it fails somewhere else and then I kick myself because the part goes NLA in the meantime. I figure the original tank lasted 20 years, I am 68 and will be lucky if I last as long as the replacement.

my experience was really good replacing the tank with a new one. There were more stress cracks than I realized in the old one.
