Power Gear Hydraulic Fluid Tank

Have developed a pin hole(s) leak in the bottom of the tank. Tried cleaning it off and applying JB Weld but it's still leaking. Think I need to drain and remove the tank to really clean and patch it but not sure about removing it without some direction. Any info out there? Many thanks.

I saved several hot water tanks by screwing a small Stainless screw into the hole and then epoxying over the screw. If you put a soft aluminum washer under the screw head to act as a seal, and then clean the area with brake cleaner, the epoxy would then stick.

This is the way to correct your problem. The SS screw with a copper or aluminum washer will fix your problem on that pinhole. This is good advise...

If the fix above does not work, email Power Gear. They are very quick to respond...they have to be since they won't take phone calls from customers.
