Long bolt punctured fuel tank How to fix?

Recommended Posts

Just purchased a r32 gts4 and have discovered a fuel leak due too a bolt the was too long being used to fasten the fuel pump cradle and puncturing the fuel tank + pushing the O ring seat down by the bolt hole in question. Is there any known ways to deal with this issue?

 

cheers

Like above, you could also try Steelstick, made by the JB Weld folks. It's like play-dough and can be had at most any store with a hardware section.

A another solution would be to weld a patch over the hole.

Yes, but, my impression was that anyone who would ask how to repair a fuel tank should not be told to weld it.

When we used to weld fuel tanks - taken off the vehicle - fully drained -  left to dry out for a day or 2 - connect them to the exhaust pipe of another car and fill 'em with carbon monoxide for about an hour or so and - then have the courage to start welding
