78 brat gas tank help
Posted 20 November 2012 - 06:44 PM
1. Do I try and fix it? Which I have no idea how to.
2. Do I spend an arm and a leg to get one from a yard out west? I'm in PA
3. Get a fuel cell and mount it in the bed? Not sure if it will pass inspection.
Unless some one has a spare on the forum....
The tank is already out of the car just need some advice.
Thanks in advance

If someone wants to grab this and ship it to me I'd pay well.

If the hole is big enough to need a patch, fiberglass with a POR 15 coating inside the tank will work great. Good luck finding anyone who will weld on a gas tank.
Both methods are really just buying you time, so be on the lookout for a new tank. The JB Weld lasted quite a few year on my El Camino though.

The inside coating crap just starts to flake off over time and starts plugging stuff-IE-carb, fuel filters,pump,I"ve seen my buddies do it on motorcycles-last about a year or so then issues!! I"d weld it-nothin but a thing!! Gen 1 wgn. here I don"t rememb.if it was 2 or 4x I"m going up there now.. Super clean car-windshield,frt.end,dash-all gone
You can weld on a fuel tank safely if you fill it with water.
