  1. gave the car a shake down today and pushed it hard only to discover a nasty leak when cornering from fuel tank. have identified source as the sender seal, i removed to find of the 4 bolts welded to the tank, 2 had been over tightened and riped a hole in the tank. so i guess my optiins are, 1 removed tank, reseal with tank repair, drill 4 holes and place new bolts through the neck of tank hole? 2. buy a different tank? unless any one has any better ideas?
  2. Hello every one. First of thanks for reading. I have a series 3A with a 2lt pinto engine the head has been tuned to stage 3. The head gasket blew between cylinders 3+4 so I got to work and replaced it with an uprated one from burton. Also got the head checked and skimmed 10thou more but the new head gasket should fill that a bit. Today was my first little drive out nice and steady as the weather was ok ish. Got back had a little look around the engine bay for anything unexpected and there I found a nice little trail of oil coming from where the exhaust meets the engine on cylinder 1. Anybody know what this could be? I was thinking valve stem seals but don't really want to take the head off again just to do that. Also what oil grade does everyone use in a pinto? My motor factors told me it takes 5-30 semi synthetic. Thanks again.
