Model A gas tank leak

Recommended Posts

We have gas dripping down the chase used to hide the instrument panel wires and speedo cable. The leak is not at the gauge and not at the petcock. The car is a southern car and not a rust bucket. The leak occurred with less than 2  gallons of gas in the tank. I can see the back of the tank and it and the face of the tank are dry. Ideas? Might it be a spot weld where the chase is welded to the tank?

You don't mention which year.

Early A's have the steering column support bracket riveted and soldered to the gas tank and are prone to leaks but if it was leaking there you'd smell gas like crazy IN the car.

Beyond that that is all I know for sure....... :huh:
