Need to get 1980 Toro 826 running

Neighbor gave me a 1980 Toro 826. Model 38150, seriel 00008970. Said it ran two years ago but left outside. Paint actually in good shape except inside thrower. Engine free, and fires on Ether. However metal gas tank very corroded inside. Looking to get this runnong for a Veteran. Should I install modern plastic tank, what will fit?

The Plastic Tanks are 70-80 New and Far Better than the Metal 1's.

Sounds like spark and compression are good, replace fuel lines, seal or replace tank, clean or replace carb, check belts, top off auger gearbox, adjust shoes, open up tranny and inspect rubber drive disc and replace if necessary, lube and adjust tranny, and clean and lube the steering clutches ( I believe that model has them )....great machine....I just hate the electric safeties....
