3SX Fuel Tank Stud Repair Kits

3SX Fuel Tank Repair Kits

Water finds it way up to the top of the tank, and tends to pool right there and, over time, this inevitably leads to corrosion of the various metal components. Most famous for corrosion are the studs and nuts that fasten to the top of the fuel tank and the thin-walled steel tubing that makes up the fuel feed line. This corroded sending unit is bad enough if it's just sitting there, but the minute it's disturbed (to change the fuel pump for example), watch out! Can you say "SNAP!" because that's a very common outcome to the studs and fuel feed line when any pressure is applied to them.

The principal components of these repair kits are either two C-shaped repair plates, or one cresent shaped repair plate, that is fastened underneath the top of your fuel tank and contains threaded holes (in precise locations) to accept new bolts to replace any missing/broken studs. These repair plates are sealed to the fuel tank with a new seal (included!) which provides a leak-proof seal. These repair kits can be used to replace ANY number of broken studs on top of your fuel tank, even ALL of your original studs can be replaced with brand new stainless steel bolts. So no need to worry yourself about snapping those feeble, rusty studs. (We can't help but believe there exists an engineer at Mitsu with a sick sense of humour. How else can the choice of those ridiculous feeble studs be explained)?
