Hey,
I noticed the smell of gas comming from under the front of my seat and noticed the hinge plate area to be wet with gas.. it was hard to tell were it was comming from..such a small leak; so I took the tank off, pressurized it and dunked it into water...there was about 6-10 psi inside the tank and i didnt see any leaks appear under water; around the hinge or anywhere. wtf.. i was told that the leak may only appear when the tank is clamped down and under stress.

Would this leak test be sufficient for finding this leak or what?
Maybe one of the pressure lines is squirting fluids? they appear is good condition.

thinkin i should just get the whole plate/hinge welded anyways but im not sure if that would help cause i cant find the leak.

AnyIdeas?

99% chance it's the hinge plate. Get it brazed - see above post.
