Default Re: Tank leak fix

i could be wrong [wont be the first or last] but i dont think they are pipe [npt] threads. i say this because the petcock bottoms on the gasket and pipe threads are tapered. that said loctite 290 is made to hold metering screws in carbs and isnt affected by gas, it wont fix a crack but should seal threads. buy the way, back in the old days before plastic tanks, bubble gum would fix some pretty good leaks on steel and alum tanks if you crashed alot like me. i seem to remember over the bars was the way i exited the bikes! most of the time... dennis
