I have acquired a Mercury Fuel tank for nowt, bargain!
However I need to replace the Mercury bayonet with one for my current fuel line, Honda bayonet.
The tank boss is none standard so I need to use it to make the connection. I have bought a Honda type connector with a NPT thread (only ones available)
Trouble is the hole in the tank boss is slightly too large to take the Honda connector. I am referring to the inside diameter of the inner drilling in the picture difficult to explain). The gap between the connector and the flange hole is only about 0.5mm so quite easily filled with epoxy.
Tank side is alloy and adaptor side is steel (possibly stainless).
I thought of helicoils, or epoxy.
I also thought of just scrapping the whole thing and just buying a new tank (circa £35). Could probabaly use the adaptor in the new tank.
But before I do
A picture attached (I hope) to illustrate the problem.
Thanks in advance.
