TD .020 backplate

Post  ddock on Fri Nov 20, 2015 4:49 pm

Does anyone out there in .020land have a good way to seal the back-plate to the tank....Over the years ,I think I have tried most with very limited success...Tired of leaky fuel tanks.
Thanks,

Hi

I use red silicone around the rim of the tank.

Is it leaking around the center screw or from the edge where the paper gasket is?

The paper gaskets get petrified over the years. Replacing gasket with a new one might help.

Sometimes a hairline crack developes where the center screw is. Replacing the backplate is the only option. I haven't found a glue that sticks well to Delrin.

You can see the dry silicone around the screw and a bit on the edge of the tank:

A thinly cut O-ring from an appropriately sized piece of fuel tubing worked to seal the tank backplate screw on the World's Smallest Traveling Engine .010.
