    gas tank repair

    I need some advice on gas tank repairs. It seems some people recommend baking the lining they add inside the tanks, while others just recoat the inside without heat. There are even repair kits you can pour in the tank yourself. I have also heard of linings which came loose over time. Anybody know the correct solution, and why?

    JFG, While I cant recommend what way is best about the inner coatngs I will say that I finally got an answer back from a firm in Pa that specializes in ‘recovering’ old gas tanks no matter what their condition – even swiss cheese the guy said. Unfortunately he is remiss about answering his emails and the response was too late for me (in Jan 08 Id waited four months). I finally had had a good used tank shipped to me in Balt Md from Roundup MT. I will try and look up the company again for you and post on the forum if you still need a solution.

    I have used sealer like Eastwood sells with a lot of success about 10 years ago. Now that a lot of gasoline has that Ethanolcrap :angry: in it you need to make sure the sealer is resistant to ethanol.

    Thanks, guys, for the posts. I just recently had a friend with a lot of experience recommend the Eastwood product. Says the critical part is getting as much of the old rust out as possible, using “pea-gravel” and the cleaner provided by Eastwood. Then use their sealant. No need to bake it. Now I need to find some pea gravel!

    i know it is an old thread, i am slowly reading through them all.

    what works better than pea gravel is a log chain. this way, after you are done. it is much easier to get the chain out than the pea gravel.
