Default Re: Broke another gas tank!

as one tightens the tank, the straps bend toward the center - I always watch the holes in the straps so that I can see the point at which the outside of the hole first touches the threads of the stud - stop there, as any further tightening will bend the stud

if that isn't tight enough to hold the tank, then apply double-sided tape under tank
Sometimes I sets and thinks, sometimes I jes sets.
