Hey guys, I just got my wife's Rebel 250 home,I knew there was rust in the tank, but now I'm seeing leakage from 5 pin holes. I was thinking about using the Caswell two-part epoxy treatment, but one hole is actually a stream the hole is somewhere around 1/32" (+/-) in size. Wanted to ask if the Caswell would work for something that big? Thanks!
yes it sure will
tape outside of hole, use 1/2 of pint kit...
Caswell is Very viscus and takes some time to roll around inside tank to assure good coverage..
wall coating will slump down to lowest point so keep rotating..
I used less than 1/2 of pint kit some 10 years ago hasn't leaked since..
isn't cheap but provides a thick internal patch unlike some coatings..
Giving up on this tank. The more I abrade the insides with small bolts and nuts, the more places this tank weeps through, just under the paint. Ordered one of the "replacement" tanks and will use the casswells on that tank before installing. I think I'd prefer that to worrying about the wife on an iffy tank.
When it stops, remove the gas cap and see if it will immediately start up. If it does, either the breather tube needs to be cleared (more difficult) or the cap needs to be vented. A vacuum is forming because the tank isn't venting. https://www.hondarebelforum.com/f76/...k-31610-2.html
Keepin' all the left over parts. Gonna use 'em to build another bike!
