Hi All, I am slowly getting this thing up and running. Has anyone used POR-15 to seal a gas tank? I have a slow leak at the bottom of the tank. The bracket at the bottom was soldered back on. Well, the solder is cracking or something as it is now leaking. Should I try the POR-15 or should I just get a new tank? Thanks, Ted

After acid bathing my WD tank, it had some good sized holes in it. Went with JB weld on the ext and used a gas tank liner on the int. Works just fine. If the hole is real bad, I'd find a better tank.

i havent heard anything about the por-15 tank liners. i know that supposadly their products wont be eaten through with gasoline. I have heard many good things about the summit racing tank liners. From what ive heard, theyre used quite a bit in classic car repairs. it is cheaper than por-15 too. http://www.summitracing.com/parts/SUM-900056-3/

i hope this helps

Our WD45 tank has a leak by the corner of the mounting bracket. Wish I would have known before I put it back on after painting and filled it with gas. If you can't weld or braze it, why not JB weld?

Thanks KTS_B !! I just went and looked up JB Weld on the net and they say it will work! I will try it and see what happens. Thanks!

if you use the sealer, the tank must come off, be acid cleaned, dry, no rust, then sealed. Sealer works on pin holes, probably not as good on cracks?

A new tank will probably be the way to go.
You don"t need gas leaks with a hot engine.

I don"t know what tank you need. Many are no longer available.
Alot of good used ones are out there.

Today's Featured Article - The Engine Rebuild Kit - by Curtis Von Fange. I always liked engine rebuild kits. They have all the replacement parts for overhauling an engine without going to the store to get gaskets, special measuring tools, or miscellaneous parts. They come neatly packaged, clean and tidy. But it's important not to let that packaging lull you into a false sense of security. The appearance of matching sleeves, pistons, rings, and bearings can cause frustration and agony if not properly measured and installed in a workshop environment. Following c ... [Read Article]
