gas tank for 81 wagon,where to buy?

Recommended Posts

Yeah - or find a Junk yard that doesn't punch holes in them. Don't know where your from, but some yards do, and others don't. A new tank is over $300. Get yours welded, or get a used one.

My Brat "Brat Patrol" has internal rust flakes that plug up the pick up tube.

A Harley rider friend speaks of a gas tank sealer they use on old shovels tanks and such

First an acid "etching" solution is added, then the sealer is put in - sloshed about, the excess poured out and then let it dry.


Has anyone ever heard of this treatment?

A quick Goggle search turned up one of my favorite companies

POR 15

Think I may try this


This is feasible for our applications (all boneyard tanks in my area look toast and 300 GW's is not in the cards

Maybe I should post a new thread?
