Thanks a lot! Figuring stuff out and problem solving is my favorite thing to do, especially with mechanical / mechanical type things. I am in school so this project might not happen anytime soon, but when it does I'll be sure to report back with the results.now thats a great attitude to have! not too often you find a young kid with an attitude like that. keep that mode of thinking and you'll go far.
I am not at home, but it was just the silver solder that was like the same brand as the solder itselt next to it. Where do you get the handi flux? I have wire brushes. I do not have an oxy torch, only a propane torch. That may be my issue.If you encountered problems silver soldering, I'll ask what if anything were you using for a flux?
I've fixed quite a few Jerry cans as well as Blitz cans that had pin holes along the seams. A wire brush and Handy Harmon Handi-flux has always worked.
I use an oxygen acetylene torch with a VERY small tip so as to not distort the metal anymore than needed. Once the can has been pressure tested, I POR-15 the inside.
Brazing and Soldering are two different techniques. Brazing is usually a bronze alloy, with a Acetyline torch, while soldering is using solder, with a propane torch/Iron. I have used brazing to cover holes well over a 1/2 inch.Hmm interesting.....It will be used only for diesel, so it shouldnt be a problem.
I tried using a propane torch and silver solder and it just beaded off....I was brought to my attention that it might be chemical contamination. Maybe I'll give it a shot. Regardless there are holes too big to braze.
I purchase my flux at one of the large weld supply houses.I am not at home, but it was just the silver solder that was like the same brand as the solder itselt next to it. Where do you get the handi flux? I have wire brushes. I do not have an oxy torch, only a propane torch. That may be my issue.
