Tank spider leaks

Post by alfredhamstra » Wed Apr 03, 2019 8:19 am

Hi all, my fueltank from my 67-spider leaks.
Is there a replacement for sale?
Superperformance has them, but price is high in my opinion...

Any ideas anybody?

Hello,
where is the leak ?
I got it in the area from the overflow pipe into the tank, easy to fix with metal glue
greetings
Peter

There is one guy in Napoli who is able to create new tanks for the Dinos... but they come to the same price as from superformance.

I will take it out this weekend and see how bad it is. Ill check inside with a insidecamera.
If fixable, ill clean it from inside (lemonacid or something), take paint out from outside and weld the seem close.
Hope it works

thanks for all input

Thanks for all the input.
It was no leak after all!

The previous owner has put a return fuelline from carbs to tank.
He did not secure it in a good way: he put a hole in the tanksender and made a bad connection with....some rubber...
So when i filled the tank compl;etely, it overflooded from there
I took the returnline away anyway (not original for early spiders) and closed the hole with epoxy.

Thanks
