3Z406 Air tank leaking

by Steve
(Chandler, Arizona)

Air tank has a small hole and a slow leak. Is it worthwhile to get the hole welded shut or should I just look for a new tank? I'm guessing that the prior owner never drained the air out of the tank after each use and thus the inside of the tank is badly rusted.

3Z406 tank

I would never repair a compressor tank with a leak.

I would expect that the entire tank is ripe for pressure failure, and fixing one small part will not resolve this.

I would always buy a new tank.
