Hi?
Savage 4.6. I have a question about the fuel tank damage.
As shown in the picture, the filter fell into the fuel tank. Is there any way to repair it again?


I made a hole in the fuel tank and pulled out the filter to get rid of the filter that wobbled away from the fuel tank.
best regards

Try welding a piece in using soldering iron? I would get a replacement tank. Not heard of a filter coming loose inside the tank. Didnt know there is a filter inside as always use an external filter.

Better off getting somthing to thread into the hole from a hardware section,as said above,glue and nitro isnt a good mix

I think your better of just getting a new tank, I know of other truck tanks that would fit just don't remember which ones.

Yes there is a filter inside. Seems to filter out fuel impurities

I bought a used fuel tank. Thank you everyone. Later, when the time comes, I'll try to reattach the broken ones!
