My Dad patched the gas tank on our 8n with JB weld. He used a piece of pillow case saturated with JB weld that had been thinned with paint thinner and it is still holding. I think we used about four tubes. The patch was about 6x8 inches. We first tried using gas tank epoxy but the patch just fell off after curing. A neighbor told him to use the JB weld and paint thinner and it worked. I used JB weld to seal a cracked brass emulsion tube (i think that's the right term) on my Harley carburetor years ago and it held up until last year when I disassembled the carburetor, I discovered the JB weld had started to soften. One of these days I will get around to patching it again so I can go riding.
