Rich, if it's leaking under the left side of the tank, it could also be the fuel pump. Where it mounts to the tank. The screws may be a little loose and it's leaking around the O ring. Worth a check and see.... May just need some tightening.
I don't think it's the chain anymore, I think it's the transmission slipping out of gear. Paying careful attention. More later. Signed,Dr. Science
Re-epoxied the tank seam yesterday. It wasn't leaking exactly, just weeping very slowly (not enough to actually drip on the ground). I tried to be careful to get a thick layer on the leaky spot despite the action of gravity working against me. It helped to let the epoxy thicken for a couple of minutes in the mixing cup before starting to apply it.
......I came in 8 months ago knowing nothing...........
and, I still know nothing !!!!
As best I can tell, this is a permanent fix. If it's still holding a week from now, I won't bother to try to get the tank replaced under warranty. (The devil you know...)
Somewhere along the line RE changed the stamping for the underside of the tank to allow for a little more room and to make a better tank. The net result is that the flanges are wider on new tanks.
Just to circle back: the second coat of JB Weld epoxy fixed my leak. I was extra-generous with the epoxy this time, because the area of leakage is on the underside and not visible without taking the tank off. So I'm unlikely to get any further leaks along that weld seam.As best I can tell, this is a permanent fix.
