What really alarmed me about the replacement tank issue is that weird seal they come with. I can't imagine why the builder can't improve on this. The original story in question (see previous thread) mentions that the JH owner had his mechanic do the install and the mechanic was the guy that raised the red flag on the whole seal being a bogus fix- they prefer I not mention the mechanics name, but he is a well known expert with a highly respected shop and and has decades of racing experience. I would be concerned if I owned one of these tanks and I would certainly take the time to complete a correct repair as Erik has done.

As far a replacements go- you can't beat Renew Tank Repair that these guys do < http://www.gas-tank.com/>. This is very high quality, permanent repair that will not fall apart with age.
