Drain it , dry it and clean it up. Who knows it may just need the threads teflon taped and put back together.

Thanks, B-maniac.

But I think it's above where the bowl screws into the tank. It's the thing that comes directly out of the tank that is leaking--between the metal of the tank and the part that comes out and receives the top of the bowl. I don't think that screws in. Any ideas?

Clean it up well, and de-fume it with a good detergent washing, then re-solder the bung with a copper.

Thanks, F.I.T. I'll try that. A little more work than I had hoped. Have to take the tank off.

Probably not a bad idea to put the tank on some blocks to put the 'to be soldered' area 'up' and fill the tank with as much water as possible up to (below) the 'to be soldered' point. Residual gas can make a nasty FAWHOOMPH !! HTH
