Re: Square Oil Tank Repair
So.... you're saying the tank is cracked underneath the bracket, so you don't have direct access to the crack itself?
Anything you put in the oil tank could end up in the motor--- a sealer would not be a wise choice, in my opinion.
Brazing seems like a second-rate choice, as well. I've seen brazed cracks do fine for a period of time, but the crack returns.
If it was mine, I'd remove the portion of the bracket that is blocking access to the crack, and have an expert Tig welder repair the crack.
Then do whatever cosmetics need to be done where the portion of bracket was removed.
You mentioned a milling machine to remove part of the bracket. Would a steady hand with a die grinder do as well?
