Thanks for all of the advice regarding my radiator. Here is the next part of the question. The hole is on the tank, close to the gas tank. Is it safe to solder so close to the gas tank? Would it be safer if I drained the gas tank? Thanks again for the advice.

Take the tank out.. or at least use a soldering gun.. with lots of flux and a good gun, and clean metal, you can solder it.. It is real thin metal..

Take the radiator out! Aint that hard. Be safe. If you gotta solder in place cover the gas tank with wet rags and towels and such and keep them wet. Empty gas tank is a fuel/air bomb just waiting to do SERIOUS damage. Ask al qaeda about fuel/air bombs.
Wrap any close, solder joints on the radiator with damp rags if you might get them hot. You don't want stuff coming unsoldered while you aren't looking.
Get your hose turned on and near. A bucket of water would be good too.

I don't know where the hole is exactly but just to get enough working room to be comfortable, if the hood has to come off then the gas tank comes off too.

Fuel is fuel and dangerous either way but you have to remember that liquid gas isnt whats dangerous its the fumes that are explosive so just a drained tank is just as dangerous or actually more dangerous than a full tank. Just a thought to remember.
