Bloddy oil tanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm about to pack up for a trip to the Alps but during a little routine check I discovered a fucking leak/crack exactly at the same spot as jjb’s tank...
The problem is that I have not the time to take it off and no one that can fix it on such a short notice either… I leave Oslo Thursday morning with the ferry to Kiel…....and this is my 2. tank only 1, 5 years old!!! (I got a new one trough waranty claim)
Anyway, I drained the tank, grinded of the paint, washed with spirituous and mixed together some 2 component liquid metal and applied a firm 3-5mm thick layer over the whole profile, 50mm on both sides of the crack ….and then after it cured, I test drove for half an hour… but back home it started to sweat out through the plastic padding… Then I filled over with Tech 7. This is my last option.
Anyone with a better advice?
