Fuel Tank Repair

Good evening folks.

Can anyone offer some guidance for repairing leaks in an S90 tank? Specifically, my aux tanks seem to leak around the sumps even after replacing. I didn't build the plane and unfortunately, there are no manuals and access ports for the tanks. Any advice is appreciated.

Is this a solid plug or is it like a SAF-AIR drain valve? If it's a drain valve it's probably just a o-ring issue. I think you can get a re-build kit for them or you might have to replace it. I'm not sure what size it might be.
If the leak is around a solid plug you might try some fuel lube on the plug.
If it's leaking around the AL block that's bonded in the tank that's a bigger issue. Fixable but more work.

Thanks Joe. We replaced the quick drain valve. All fixed.
