I will say yes!  The PO of my 854 did just that. And it doesn't leak.

I don't see why not. Another option is what I did on my 854. After installing a new gasket I used some liquid tank sealer that I found at a motorcycle shop. It never leaked again. :)

I second the use of a new gasket and the tank sealer.  I did this on my 854 and it hasn't leaked in 2+ years.  I recommend the 2-part epoxy tank sealer, as it hold up better over time than the single stage stuff.

This is some good info. I have a 753 with the 2 piece gas tank. It doesn't leak, but when i restore it, I want to put a new gasket on the tank, but I'm afraid of stripping the screws so I may just coat the inside of that tank and follow the age old saying "If it ain't broke, don't fix it!"

I beleive I used Yamabond without a gasket. (It's a Yamaha product, resistant to gas and oil.)That was well over 5 years ago now, with no problems.

      I’ve recently gotten into flux core welding and I’ve been making all sorts of attachments for my 310-8. I was wondering what other crazy things people have made for their tractors.

      Anyone have creative ideas / designs for building an economical generator for 520 tractor?  I have always wanted one and contemplated building one a time or two before.  I have only found a few used models over the last 20 years.  Recently saw a new old stock unit on a tractor on Instagram.  It was pretty awesome!

      Hello everyone!  I am going to replace the ignition trigger on my grandfather's 520.  Any tips, tricks or important things I should know before starting?  I already have the parts.  I just need to tear into it.
