Gas tank issue - 1969
I hope I am not wasting people's time, because I think I know the answer, I just need to air my strategy and see what people think. I just noticed when I fill my tank, gas drips off of each or the forward corners of the tank (forward being close to the axle) and it drips on the exhaust pipe. I tried to reach up to the sending unit gasket and it feels dirty, but dry up there. But what are the chances, it would leak at 2 opposite corners? But it is either leaking there, or at the sending unit and if the latter, it seems doubtful it would run out to the corners.
I guess I know what I need to do, pull the tank, then I can see if the sending unit is leaking or I do have two holes. My questions to y'all are these:
The car had a frame off in 2007 and the tank was replaced. Should I have this tank repaired, or if it does leak, replace it? I have heard a lot of stories about tanks getting damaged in shipment and filler neck fitment. I know what I have and should I just repair it?
If I do replace it, who has good ones? Spectra seems to be common, but am I better off going through OPG or Ames?
I just filled the tank... ARGH! How much gas do I need to take out to get the tank down? Then I need to find a place to put the gas.....
