inlarge hole where it broke off,pull pipe up through it,fill it with JB weld
around and stick pipe in JB weld.
you can also close hole all together and plug pipe on bottom of
tank.eliminate pipe all together.
only reason it is there is for fuel to drain out of area around cap if you
spill it.use towel in such case :)

I know I have seen this somewhere, either here or on svrider.com but cannot
remember. I have done some searches, but must not be using the right
keywords to pick it up. Or not recognizing it. Anyway, I found today in
changing my gas cap that the drainage tube that is welded to recess of the
area the cap sits in has broken off the top of the tank. Can anyone point me
in the direction of fixing this quickly? We have an endurance race next
Saturday, the 9th, and the kids are doing sprints on the next day. If it is
not an easy or quick fix, my thought was to get a small bolt and nut with a
couple rubber washers to seal off the opening. Then pinch closed the tube
inside the tank. This could cause an issue with water around the cap because
it would have no where to go, but I am kind of limited in options. The only
other thing would be if someone had an extra tank they wanted to get rid of
and could ship out quickly.
