No strip joint? Then what's the point of having a strip mall?
RIGHT ! I 'hear' there's one just north of Rogers  :wink:

In the words of Buck Owens, "Together Again". I deferred from the solder and sealant and will see what happens. With a little shimming here and there, things mounted with no stress or pulling of the mounting points. I should have showed  the other horrible repair work on the other tabs and you would know why I'm not spending any more time on these cockroaches.

Pig-trail HD in Rogers ?
I worked in that area for about 4 years, nice dealership, there's a indy there too, D&D Cycles, he's a great guy and prolly has most of what you'll need  :up:


Yeap, leaving in a few minutes.  Just need a pair of top rocker box gaskets.  I probably have a pair out in the garage.  So it's really just an excuse to go for a ride.
:up: I get it  :SM: have a safe ride, if you get a chance check out D&D they are right down the road on the same side in a strip store (NOT A STRIP JOINT HOSS)  :hyst:

Well here is the ugly. Impurities abound but holds about 10 psi. I'm tired of phuckin with it and will put it back together. As KD mentioned I thought it would be a good idea to put some bronze rod on it but crap just keeps sifting through.  I've been here before. Know when to say when. I'll put on some self etching primer and and a little black and see how long it lasts. It does seem strong at least. I see new tanks in my future. Hope I can find something decent. Thanks for all the thoughts and comments. I'll post the finished product when it's all back together.


If it's not too late, consider cleaning that surface up and using a hot iron to sweat a solder cove on that.  The hot iron won't pull anything into the puddle and it will bridge the small spots to guarantee a no leak seal.

Permatex makes an epoxy just for fuel tanks, I have used it with excellent results. Frank
    I used this on a old truck with damn near a stream of gas coming out , lasted the year I had the truck

EZ install are not about now, they're about next time. Is the Mrs. giving you a ration of grief about all the money you're spending on "that bitch, that whore" out in the garage?
 :wink:

Mistress JW...... Mistress.   And no, I'm not getting any grief from the Mrs about the money - she's worse than I am.  She's just happy I'm out in the workshop.    :wink:
