Homelite Owner Extraordinaire
for you repair gurus out there. While exploring my nephews new property I split the oil tank on my Polaris 400 Sportsman. It split after I drove up on a small tree. There is no guard around it and it hangs on the frame right behind the left front wheel. It is a plastic tank and is glued together. I have finished splitting the tank and it is not broken, stretched, or warped. The two halves are fitted together with one side having a female side and a male side on the other. In other words there is a grove on one half and a tongue an the other half. I tried the Gorilla Epoxy and it will not adhere to it. I've seen the Locktite epoxy - binder but not sure if this will work. Wondering if you guys have had any good experience with something like this. A new tank is $ 256 list and my cost of $ 149 + tax. It does have pressure on it but I can't imagine it would be that much. A regular auto engine normally carries aprox. 60 - 70 psi. Thanks for any info on this. Roger.
