Can this be repaired?

Iíve got a nice sized crack on my black tank. Iím sure itís not repairable but would like some wise insight first before I order a new one. Itís in my 68í Ambassador.

Thanks,
Zach

Looks like the tank was hanging from the flange. I would fix that engineering problem when replacing the tank.

VTS sells a tank repair kit, but with the location of the break, and the fact that it's a black tank from 1968, I wouldn't. It seems like a location that would be subject to a lot of stress, and a failure would be a huge mess in addition to the work you'd have to do to dig back into the belly pan and swap the tank out. It'll be easier to put in a new tank now than it will ever be again.

I say buy once, cry once.
