Hi all. I'm trying to replace a leaking fuel tank on a friend's AV 51. I am not familiar with this model at all and am having trouble finding any fuel tank rear handle assemblies listed on eBay. Does anyone know if parts for another model would be compatible? Thanks.

The fuel tank is not part of the rear handle assembly. It's built as part of the starter. Stupid, because there's alot of weight hanging off the side and the bolt holes tend to wallow out and strip threads. The 075/076 tank should work but it will be wider. The 076 uses a different starter pawl, I think, so the pulley wouldn't match the flywheel.

Try the proper saw name, 051AV. Also, the TS50, TS510, TS760, 050AV. All could possibly provide parts.
