Tractor & Machinery Magazine use and review Rustbuster’s Slosh fuel tank sealer
Knowing how to seal a fuel tank is often a key part of any restoration project, or part of ongoing maintenance of an older vehicle. It’s not just cars or motorcycles that can benefit from this process, as demonstrated by a recent feature in Tractor & Machinery magazine.
Andrew Hall tackled the task of sealing the tank from his 1949 Fordson Major E27N. It was part of a maintenance project to address erratic running caused by loose dirt in the tank. After leaving the tractor stationary for over a year, a look inside the tank also revealed stale fuel.
In his article, Andrew described the stages he went through to return his tank back to working condition.
Step one - removing and cleaning the tank:
Step two - sealing with Slosh:
The tank was then left for a few days to ensure maximum curing of the sealer before use. Andrew also took the opportunity to fit a replacement fuel tap assembly and paint the outside of the tank prior to refitting.
This wasn’t the first time Andrew had sealed a tractor tank. He writes: “I have successfully used Rustbuster’s Slosh before in my Ford 8’s fuel tank, which was very rusty before it was treated. As well as sealing the inside of the tank, the product sealed any loose matter that couldn’t be removed, so preventing any further issues.”
Andrew’s feature clearly struck a chord with the magazine’s readers. We received calls from a number of them after the piece was published, with many placing an order for a kit comprising Slosh and the Tank-Kleen SP10 cleaner.
