tarps3 is on a distinguished road

sounds familiar...
after going thru 2 BRAND NEW repro tanks I finally took the last one to a local radiator shop.

they did the same thing as yours:
take it apart and re-solder all the seams. Both sides.

they told me they didn't know how the thing ever stayed together - the repro soldering was so spotty and thin.
Very poor workmanship.

It's the only way I've ever had one of these smooth face tanks stop leaking.

good job!
