Default Re: Gas tank leaking

To DHZIEMAN

To me the repair looks like solder. The leak was on the upper joint of the bracket to the tank. Still holding tight after over 70 years.

The old time mechanics taught or showed me Model A repair and maintenance tricks I still do today. For example in the days before miracle adhesives, and torque wrenches, we used chassis grease as a sealant and "tighten firmly".
