I finally got around to fixing that nuisance drip from the gas tank. Right where the tank bracket is fastened to the tank. I replaced the tank from a parts tractor, figured I had it, but darn it, this one leaks in the same place too. I'm thinking of trying the product that you line tank innards with, but I don't have the product info, and where I can get it. If anyone has this info, please post it....thanx in advance,,,Dave

NAPA sells a sealer called REDKOTE. It's good stuff and easy to use.
Sounds like your B is leaking in the same spot my A was. There was crack where the baffle is spot welded to the inside of the tank. This spot weld is right under the mounting bracket. I ground the bracket back with a die grinder to expose the crack then brazed up the crack and put a new metal piece on the bracket. CAUTION: wash out the tank with hot/soapy water and let it dry in the sun for a few days with the cap and bowl off. Also, fill it with water before you grind and braze. Good luck.

I used RedKote on my M's gas tank. It works great, but it dribble out the bottom hole for 24 hours or so. I was told to let it do that or as the stuff thinned on the sides and top it would build a think pool on the bottom. Make sure you have wood or plastic under the tank to catch any drippings. I found that cardboard don't cut it and now I have a nice red disk on my shop floor to be hammered off. But the tank is looks great! Soon to be red inside and out! -BTD

I got mine sealer From Eastwood. Used it on my C about 6 months ago. Works great. Does not tell you in the ad, but you also have to buy a jug of muratic acid and a can of acetone at a paint store or building supply. Brings the total cost with shipping to around $60. Be sure to follow the directions to the letter!

Apparently you can't go directly to the item without going through the Eastwood Home page. Search on Tank Sealer once you get to Eastwood.

If no luck anywhere else, try a motorcycle shop. I got the Kreem at a Honda store here in Pa. It consists of three bottles. Follow the directions carefully and it will work great.

I had the same problem on a tractor and used a coating product to seal it. Works fine, no problems for about 5 or so years now.
Follow the directions faithfully. Use the cleaner that your sealer calls for to get it ready to coat. I put several coats in mine. It takes a little time, but it's worth it.
I got mine from a supply shop in California that advertised in Red Power magazine, I don't remember the name of it.

J.C. Whitney calls theirs "Kreem", the Eastwood Company just calls it "gas tank sealer". I don't know for sure if NAPA carries the same kind of product, but it's worth asking them about it. Just ask for gas tank sealer or "sloshing sealer". If they carry it, they should be able to identify it by that name.
