There are a couple of sources for new tanks if the repair doesn't work out (or you feel like spening the money). I was looking at this issue a couple of years ago and this is what I found:

One is the guy who advertises on ebay. He's in Southern California and makes tanks for the JH in both steel and aluminum. His prices seem to vary ($400-500) but there were mixed reviews of his produts (quality issues) as reported here on this forum.The posts are somewhere under "Fuel Stuff" if you want to read, but I can't see having an internet/telephone argument with someone hundreds or thousands of miles away if there's a problem.

The second is Axeminster Panel Specialists in the UK. This is a one man shop that produces top quality aluminum products of all sorts with much of his business coming from replacement and custom tanks. It took a few months to get mine as he keeps fairly busy, but it was well worth the wait. It's beautifully crafted and is now the centerpiece of the trunk. It was a bit pricey at the time ($700+ with shipping) but with the drop in the English pound the price should now be on par with the guy in SoCal. I just checked his website and I no longer see the JH as an option, but I'd ask anyway as he's made a number of them in the past. You wouldn't be disappointed. Check out the website just to see some of his work - it's old world craftsmanship.
