I have a small piece of something in the gas tank of my M. It is about 1/4 inch wide and 2 inches long and looks like a small piece of inner tube. I can see it with a flash light, usually near the gas line input. Twice this summer it has gotten across the gas line input and the tractor runs out of gas. I use a coat hanger to move it and all is good. Any ideas on how to get it out without removing the gas tank? Gas tank is very clean otherwise. Ellis

Use a small siphon hose. It will stick to the end as you slowly lift it out.

You need one or those tools that looks like a manual choke cable. Button on end you push with thumb, small claw comes out on end. Couple bucks at hardware store. I grabbed a old cap out my m tank with one. Priceless when needed.

I have grabbed stuff using a couple of sticks to act as pliers - kind of like using chop sticks in a Chinese restaurant.

I have one of those 'magic finger' tools. When you need it,you need it. It works.

You need one of those grab tools. The one I have hangs on the living room wall of my house so I can find it when I need it plus it works well to pick up things off the floor which gets harder to do as I get older LOL. The one I have is about 2 foot long and has a 4 finger grab end. Works well for picking up things like that in a gas tank

If it has three thin jaws, I have one and really like it. Very handy tool to have.
