The leak is on the forward facing side of the tank, 3/4 up. It's a 1" long indentation (i.e. no hole) that had an epoxy putty patch on it. My best guess it that the patch was there for at least 4-5 years, including all the time the truck just sat outside.

I JB Welded it last night. We'll see how it looks tonight.

Jim: Somewhere along the way as I was contemplating the truck someone told me parts were plentiful! I kind of assumed that while obscure, something like a plastic gas tank would be relatively easy to find. Alas, no....

I just looked at your pics. Did the tank slide forward to give rub? Weird spot to have a leak.

My guess is that the PO did it when he replaced the tank/pump/lines/plate. I bet he had some trouble getting it into place, or put it in wrong or tried to force it or maybe he just dropped it - who knows. He probably figured it out after it was installed. It doesn't look like wear related damage, looks like one bad unlucky smack.
