Leaks suck but my suggestion would be if possible to have someone skilled take the tank down to bare metal and find the leak. If it's that bad cut the tank open and sandblast everything till you can find the problem part. And then you can start over fresh. May sounds like it sucks but to me you don't seal a hole with crap already on it.



Maybe the stuff that the people used to seal it can be removed chemically and a leak down test can find the problem.

I know a man in california but he gets pretty busy.



If the stuff comes off with acetone it's something I wouldln't want in my system and that's probably why it's in your carbs.



A total clean would be in order and then I would probably get a quart of Por 15 to do the tank since it's bigger than the average bear.



Maybe even do your other tank at the same time but it would mean downtime for the bike.
