Leaking new gas tank
#1
I installed a new repop gas tank and filled it up. It seems to be leaking at the top where the fill tube goes inti it. I tightened up the straps pretty good. So what did I do wrong that makes it leak?

Is the rubber bushing on the neck in place?

Did the large rubber gromet/gasket on top get torn?

Possible two parts or did you look at the neck itself? Mine had to be welded it was full of pin holes

From the pics that Roy posted links for it appears that I need to investigate the filler tube to tank seal.
