Will a GX160/200 fuel tank mount correctly where a GX240/270/340/390 fuel tank mounts? i.e. are the three mounting points laid out the same? Was thinking of downsizing my GX240 tank.
The GX240 is now on my wood splitter out in the Maine woods (stored under a fitted cover) and there's always a lot of fuel left over in it between uses (I close the gas valve on the carb and run it dry). I was thinking of replacing the 34 year old tank that's kinda surface-rusty on the outside top half, and a friend offered me a GX200 tank from a HS724 (at least I think that was the source). But since it doesn't sound like an exact fit, I'll pass. I'll either take off the tank and refinish/paint it, or buy an aftermarket replacement for $25 or so...Curious, why downsize a gas tank?
Being a cheap b*st*rd, I would go for one of these @ $23 delivered if I don't just refinish it...a new replacement tank for a gx240 is about $30-35. I get them all the time.
thats bigger capacity than the 240/270 tank.Being a cheap b*st*rd, I would go for one of these @ $23 delivered if I don't just refinish it...

I understand being cheap, but isn't your time worth anything - refinishing is not clean or quick even though it might be easy. And I can see you spending a few bucks on decent paint, if not a bunch on Locktite Extend. That surface rust might also be on the inside....Being a cheap b*st*rd, I would go for one of these @ $23 delivered if I don't just refinish it...
post #2 should have ended it but since you give so MUCH good advice here we are all trying to return the favor.......Sheesh, now I'm sorry I even asked... The existing tank is still pristine on the inside, so in all likelihood I'll just bead blast and repaint it when I get a
