Fuel Tank Sealing on Inside


Richard B

Recommended Posts

POR-15 system works great and lasts better than steel. It's a DIY process. Used it on my H about 12 years ago. Still as good as new.

the shop and tip offer kits

which have cleaner etcher 

por 15 would be thick and hard to get into baffled areas to seal the flakes

none are cheaper than a good used tank,but with %&*&^ gas they all will need sealed as it pulls the factory coating off that lasted 50 years

POR-15 isn't very thick.  It gets into every crevice. The POR cleaner is not an etcher. Following the destructions, it removes flaky stuff before coating. (Richard B, POR-15 is a two-step process - cleaner the seal coat.) Plug your threaded outlet to keep the POR out of the threads. The destructions tell you that anyway.

I just got done doing a 656 tank for a guy and it was really nasty inside.  I put two gallons of acid and 3 lbs of 1/4 nuts from TSC, ratchet strapped it to the wheel on the A and left it rattle around for a few hours.  It was super clean when I rinsed it out.  There is some gas tank sealer that I put in there and coated the inside to keep it from rusting and to seal any other loose debris from floating around.

Had you posted about this ratchet strap system before? I remember somebody saying it, and I pictured a guy out raking hay all afternoon with a tank strapped to his wheel. 

 

No, but I saw someone on here doing this and thought it was a good idea.  If they aren't real rusty I will do it by hand, but this tank I cleaned was thick nasty rust so I thought I would give it a try.

I've heard of more people getting good results with Por-15 than any other sealer.  Kreem is another one I've heard good things about.  I bought a gas tank sealing kit from Eastwood and the acid cleaner was fine, sealer was thick, about like 140 weight oil at 25 below Zero.
