Having followed Chris G's post on his rebuild experiences, I note the frustration of said petrol tank and its obtuse fixing bolt. Am I right in assuming the entire fan housing must be removed to access this bolt? Its said a special spanner can be used
There is a bit of rust in the bottom of the tank but I cant tell how important this is
Looking at the tank, are the two halves hard soldered together?
Any advice on how to treat the internals and apply a rust proof coating?
it turns out that removal of the fan cowl is a simple matter of 4 bolts though I am less happy that two of them them are cylinder head bolts. I might convert these into studs with dome nuts. Cylinder head bolts into aluminium castings - alarm bells
