Recommendations for 1987 110 fuel tank.


Recommended Posts

I hope you’re all doing well. I’ve not been on in a while due to one thing or another.

So I’m looking to replace my 1987 110’s fuel tank. Doing some rust proofing and the tank popped a pin hole leak. For the time being I’ll try metal putty to repair as a temp but I’m looking to order a new tank, gaskets and sender. 

So I want a decent tank..... what’s your recommendations?

Think my current tank is a Allmakes [now Britpart] it got painted with a few  coats Galvafriod primer & then vehicle chassis black gloss on top, I found a galvanised stone guard on ebay, painted it, it chassis black, put a layer of sealant between tank & guard to keep moisture out, been OK sofar 7 years on.

Use plastic padding metal putty, I used this to repair a hole in my lightweights tank before i made a stainless one, lasted for years, sure there is a one for petrol / diesel regards Stephen

Edit There is its called leak fix regards Stephen

The POR15 fuel tank coating kit has a good reputation and should deal well with pin holes and porous seams.  It won’t help a structurally deficient tank, though, so whether it’s worth trying depends on the strength of what you have.

Managed to finally drain the tank without risking the actual drain plug as I fear that may have caused further problems. I’m just waiting now on JB steel putty to arrive. If it does a temp job for now great..... then new tank ordered as soon as I’m happy I’ve exhausted all options on one. 😊👍

JB Weld - better than baler twine and gaffer tape...
