  • I smell gasoline..

    ..and I am in my house.. Oh yeah..IT'S ME..! started as a I seemed a little JB Weld on the passenger side bracket.. I scrapped and cleaned..then degreased.. Mix my JB Weld (this never really works for me..another shot in the dark lazy hope)

    I had run the tank to almost dry..soooo.. Figuring this did it the trick..last night I fill the tank..

    This morning..I have a large leak now..ugh..and a full tank..and it looks like the PO glued the drain..

    Will check when I have time.. The Stude is parked outside until I can drain and drop the tank. I have a gravel and Arizona dirt (and gasoline) driveway..on 5 acres

    So the fireball can be seen..and heard..but not felt..

    Time to do it the right way. Just take it to your friendly local Radiator shop.

    Get them to clean and seal it and install a Brass drain plug. I am not sure I would trust a brass draincock like the factory used for Car Show Cars.
    Maybe if it is always Garaged, it would safe from thieves.
