I'd take it to a repair shop and do it right if it is weeping now most likely other spots are soon to show up

Thanks. Texas gasoline is contaminated with 10% ethanol. That bothers me too. Modern cars with engine management systems, can correct for the ideal fuel:air ratio. Older cars with carbs need more fuel since ethanol has a different mixture ratio. May not even be noticeable...but then again...

I think I will ask Moss about the sealant, then share the answer with the List. In the mean time, I will do as David recommended and paint a few coats of POR-15 all along the seam.

Happy Connecting. Sent from my Sprint Samsung Galaxy S® 5
