Re: Tank petcock
Okay, that fixes the petcock issue even though I believe the old Briggs petcocks were Brazed; not soldered? I am only 30 and see the old tanks less and less often anymore.
Curtisfox, this method done with this much redundancy will work well and last for a long time to come! I take back my remarks and fully support your process...
(Informational purposes for Toothy should he proceed)
You are talking about Lead/Tin solder or Silver? Silver is much stronger but requires a higher temp to get to flow.
To patch where the petcock was, you will need a patch at least 1/4" larger than the hole on all sides?
Dilute Muriatic Acid for a surface prep in lieu of a flux?
