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

Today's Featured Article - Allis Chalmers ED40 - by Anthony West. Allis Chalmers as a tractor manufacturer in its own riht is but a memory. However the number of AC tractors still in existence today as either restored or unrestored examples is a testament to the quality of their products. This in itself is always apparent here in the U.K when attempting a purchase, as no matter what the model or condition the price will always be strong. ... [Read Article]
