 Got an in-line fuel filter on it? I hear those fuel tanks are a pain to get to but maybe it’s worth it to give it a proper cleaning or replace it.  

Member  @19richie66  made a tank that fits in that “trunk” behind the seat.

If you are using gas with ethanol STOP!  Use this site to find the good stuff.              https://www.pure-gas.org/

Not too bad, all you have to do is remove the transaxle and then hope the 1/4-20 screws to the tank straps will come out!

Noticed it but didn’t think nothing about it.  Possible it could be seeping around the fuel lines under pressure when the float closes and the pump is still pumping.

I want to touch on this subject a little bit. Recently my father in law got a 250 gallon tank of ethanol free gas to use in his tractors on the farm and so that means I get to take a $20 bill down and fill my 5 gallon can. It was $3.83 a gallon when he filled the tank. I started using that in all my machines now. Small briggs engines, garden tractors, push mowers etc. You would not BELIEVE the difference that has made in my machines, they even run better! No more sand in the carb, just turn the key and go! Ok I'll stop now lol

If I was working on a car and "Remove transaxle" was anywhere in the instructions for getting the fuel tank out I would drive to Detroit, Tokyo, where ever, hunt down the guy that designed it, and shoot him myself.

Try getting a gas tank out of a 90's Ford Ranger PU :banana-wrench:

My DD is an 87 Ranger. One of my clients has a 99.

 

Been there, done that, it isn't that bad. Certainly you don't have to remove the transmission, or rear axle. The tank is actually much harder to remove from my Bronco II.
