Real happy no leak!!  V'd out the crack cleaned, recleaned, recleaned, you get it was clean.  Did take 3000's advice on the nonchlorinated cleaner.  Didn't use JB used Loctite 99913 2 part steel epoxy.  First time on that stuff.  I like it, it's a little stiffer than JB.  Had the WP 7900 P&C ready, installed it.  Used a Walbro HD12 carb.  Been sitting on the shelf for 3-4mo.  SIL who has over 20 yrs. Arbrist experience wanted to fall us some firewood yesterday.  Maiden voyage it ran flawlessly exceeded my expectations.  He was very impressed.  His big falling saw is a Husky 2100 so he has run HP.  Last tree he cut was a 28-30 white oak (20" bar on it) making the last hinge cut found hollow heart.  Tree sat back and pinched the saw.  Long story short while he was 30' up an adjacent tree roping it off.  It cut loose and does what hollow heart does it went where it wanted.  Sat down on the tank/handle crushed it.  That not what upset me (nobody got hurt is the main thing) he brought back told me the story and said I'm sorry here is your new saw broken.  Never a word about I'll buy you a new tank.  If it was his saw he would have to buy a tank but not mine???????  Family tears your stuff up and says I broke it sorry here it is.  Maiden voyage @#$%%^%*#%!  Tank is $90 + ship.
