I planned to put a liner in it but I don't want to spend money ($30+) on that unless I have a tank that will last. Please help.
Do you still have 1/4 inch of threads on the broken stud? If so it would be very easy to make a 5MM extension coupling. That would save you $30 bucks. It would be nice if they would make those studs 6MM, would save a lot of people a lot of problems. Let me know if you need some help.
