My 1990 mighty max is leaking gas out of one of the steel lines from the fuel sending unit on top of the gas tank. where can i get a new fuel sending unit or what should i do?
yes it is more than likely the hole problem. haha. but yes it can be fixed . If you can take the tank down one way to fix the leak is to wash it down with soapy water to get rid of any gas fumes, including inside the lines. Check the entire tube for holes on either side ,if the unit is badly rusted its not worth fixing, if not, sand leaking area down with plumbers tape and if you can solder water pipes then simply solder it. re -install unit . However if you cant or would not rather solder it a new one can be purchased at your local parts store in many cases or definately the dealership at the cost of a couple hundred dollars. Personally, I solder many of these as well as fuel tanks at less than a fourth the cost. Make sure you blow compressed air through the liner on the unit and filter sack to get rid of unwanted water.
