Re: New to the goup with questions

Where do you live?
We are having a fly-in at DEH in Decorah Iowa, May 1-2-3. May 2 would
be the best day to be there.
A lot of flying planes should be there. Not only the planes but the
builders too. Maybe you can attend.
If you do bring plenty of photos of your situation.
If you can't attend, keep asking questions. Someone will help you.

Hi everyone, my name is Jeff and I am new to the group. I bought
72PJ from Steve Ham about 10 months ago, and still don't have her
back to flying order yet. I am very close. Acutally, I had her at
the airport ready to go when I discovered a fuel leak. I thought it
was the fitting on the hose coming out of the main tank. Not so
lucky. The tank is actually leaking out of the front (not such a
big fix I think) but its also leaking out of the wall way above
where I think the tank should even be at. I guess i was wandering
if you have heard of this and what I should do to fix it. Do you
think I should have structural concerns? I know its not the header
tank because I have had it full multiple times for engine runs. I
also found some gunk that looked like carmel in the main tanks when
I was draining them. I think its just varnish from old gas, but if
there is some sort of sealer I don't konw about that would be handy
info also. Thanks again and I would love to hear your thoughts.
