    Fuel Tank Leaking,,,

    I just bought this TA and noticed that I can't put more than about 10 gallons in the fuel tank or it will leak. I looked under the car and it does not seem to be comming from the filler tube connection. I can see that its comming from the top of the tank. Has anyone ever had this problem? Any ideas before I drop the tank?

    It's either leaking from the o-ring that seals the fuel pump in the top of the tank or the hoses that connect to it-as stated you will have to drop the tank to find out-not fun-once you have it out (if you are good with this kind of thing) you might consider making an access door above the top of the tank.I would do this in a way that it seals back up airtight when closed.Some people have simply cut a hole in the floor above the tank to get in there in the first place -but I would rather do this on my car with the tank out so that I get something that works good and doesn't look ghetto,even though not many people will ever see it-but that's up to you.

    Thanks for the replies, looks like I will drop the tank, replace the panard and control arms while I am at it.
