So I've got the JB weld all cleaned off. Managed to chip most of it off then sanded the rest down to clean metal. I'm thinking of trying the solder then putting the Seal-All stuff over top of the solder. Think that will work?

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see
I had to solder the drain bung back onto the bottom of a tank a couple years ago. As I was applying the solder, some dripped down into the tank and started the little residue of fuel burning. I guess it went out after awhile cause the tank wasn't hot when I put it back on the tractor.

If you dont remove the tank you're wasting your time...There will still be fuel in the seam.An electric gun wont develop enough heat or 'burn' out the 'moisture'.I would not want to use a flame on an unwashed tank

On diesel and oil tanks that need mending, use the exhaust from a vacuum cleaner and put the hose in the tank. This will keep the fumes and smoke blown out so they can't reach an ignition temp or mixture. I used leaf blower once on a 500 gallon tank.
On gasoline tanks use the exhaust NOT suction to dry out the tank, then keep blowing when soldering or welding or brazing.
