My end results should have been the same, back in 1990, I soldered a leaking seam on my under the seat gas tank on my 1970 cj5.
Not sure if soldering was the best way to fix it but it worked. I even soldering the pickup tube on the top of the new sending unit.
Years ago my wife's dad sold us a Volvo station wagon (a disaster on four tires) and one of the several problems with it was a weeping gas tank. There was a recall but I didn't find out until I had dropped the gas tank and brazed the leaky seam. I blew the tank out with air for a few minutes and then when I started to braze
So this is a story of how not to prepare a gas tank for welding or brazing.
