I used 30min epoxy. With the plug removed from the tank, coat around the seam/gap of the stopper then stuff the stopper in and coat a thick layer around the tank/stopper interface. The idea is the occupy the gap between the stopper and the tank and further seal it by coating around the outside. Do not use the 5min stuff, coz it doesn't give enough working time. According to the others, other sealants work too.

Lots of different other methods around too.

BTW, it is actually possible to remove the tank from the frame w/o taking the frame apart, though it doesn't look possible. Just press on the top of the tank( the protrusion part between the main frame) and push from the exhaust side. A layer of oil around the tank helps a lot too. It isn't easy, but it is easier than it seems.

Sorry guys, not yet. Have a family matter that needs attention first. I'll get back.

Sorry, a bit off topic but, I installed the Quick UK linkage set and the servo wheels bound up a little bit on Ail and Pch. I ended up reshaping the plastic round servo wheels to avoid any interferance. Has anyone else seen this with the Q-UK linkage set?

The beatings will continue until morale improves...
