Hi John and welcome to the forum, this is the wrong section but I am sure one of the Mods will move it to the correct one later (Technical - Other I think).

Having recently had the same problem, my advise to you would be to check where the fuel line attaches to the tank. It is not uncommon for the nipple on the end of the line to work free from its solder/brazing and thus a leak will occur through the nut.
Lack of supply may be countrywide ESM are out of stock. GSM appear not to do them, Tom Roy do sell them but you will need to enquire as to them being instock: http://www.tomroy.co.uk/.
The morris minor centre also sell but again unable to tell stock via website: http://www.morrisminor.co.uk/index.htm
Same for Morris minor parts in Bath: http://www.morrisminorpartsbath.co.uk/fuel.htm
DSN Classics sell them: http://www.dsnclassics.co.uk/acatalog/D ... tem_8.html
Moggieless :(

Another great Moggy orientated Forum.

have you thought of trying to reseal the tank? i think frost amongst others do paint tank sealant, might be worth investigating if you can not get a new fuel tank

Tom Roy seemed to have tanks at the 'National' - but not cheap! Always ask for a discount.

Hi thank you for the warm welcome and I have emailed a few companies that you have mentioned and apparently there is a tooling issue with the supplier called heritage, and they could be back in stock this side 0f christmas so whilst i am waiting i will take a look at the nipple etc...thank you for the advise..from John
