Looking for recommendations to replace the fuel tank in a 1954 XK120 OTS located in Australia. Hoping to avoid the problems mentioned on this site re fuel line fittings on Jorges tanks. Best value for money tank and recommendations re anything else I need to order at the same time to get the job done (eg crush washers) would be appreciated. Filler neck is relatively new and appears in good condition.
Just found the source of a strong fuel smell in the boot, that’s Australian for ‘trunk’ Tank was dipped, stripped and painted 7 years ago. Tank could well be the original 65 year old item. Fuel is soaking through the scalloped vertical surface that faces the spare wheel where there’s obvious signs of old surface rust on the outside that has been painted over. Wipe the paint dry and a light film of fuel immediately appears from a 1cm2 area. Going to put a temporary patch using JB Weld SteelStick.
