It's not a big job to change out the tank, as long as you have one that is the same size.
Typically, it would take a do it yourselfer maybe 5 to 6 hours to do it.
No special tools required other than rivets and a rivet gun along with a drill motor.
But, if the leak has been on going for some time, you may have to replace the metal pan. That pan can be made by a local sheet metal shop, if needed.
