IMS tank leaking around gasket
« on: January 22, 2017, 12:58:14 PM »
So my IMS tank is leaking gas from around the valve, right now it has the stock gasket and the stock fuel valve, should it have a specialty gasket from IMS? I got this tank second hand so I'm not sure if it came with one or not

IMS changed the composite of the gasket for the cap but the gasket for the valve was the one you took off of your stock tank so you would have to source that from a dealer or aftermarket.
May want to get you a sheet of rubber or cork gasket material and buy or borrow a hole punch set and make your own. Would probably be of better quality anyway.

My problem ended up being the brass mating surface for the gasket was beat up so I had to scrape it smooth with a razor blade. All is good now
