Finally got around to putting in the factory washers and reinstalling the petcock again yesterday. Nogo!! ))8 sheeesh.
After bolting the petcock back on, I poured a cup of gas into the tank and held it up then tilted back to check for leaks.
It still leaks a little from the bolts and it appears a little from the oval o-ring. The underside of the tank isn't perfect but it's not that bad and didn't leak when I got it. Other than unbolting the petcock for paint and cleaning with thinner.
Am wondering if anyone has done anything to make sure that area is smooth and flat. Am thinking about spraying a really
thin coat of primer on that area then sand it flat with a block and #320 thru #600 paper. If that doesn't work will try some Seal All then finally, use it for drop kick practice. (8
