I would never try to repair that even if you could no one is gonna have that part you need you would have to cut/destroy a good tank to get that bonded with heat in manufacturing process part out. Just do it right and replace tank with a good one and I would use a 1988 and up plastic tank they are a few gallons larger. The 1 person I saw at the track try to repair one that started slipping in tank because he couldnít get that strainer out ended up having dripping fuel for weeks before he finally had to do it right.

Its certainly not easy but if your able to bond that bung back in its proper place your not really relying on the JB weld or whatever you use for a seal as the tank strainer will still be the seal with Oring and tank. There are notches in the bung and the tank where they melted/heated it in place.

I made the mistake of changing the strainer on my wifes car and the stupid little bung spun and for what....the strainer was perfectly clean after 24 years. I could have cried at that moment when it spun. I used the old strainer to help located the bung with JB weld and let dry for 48 hours. Put new strainer in and no problems ever since as the gas is sealed with the strainer at the tank and the JB weld is not sealing gasoline, just helping retain the bung.

Not going to lie, I worry every time I fill it up. If I had plenty of time I would change the tank and not worry any more. I would NEVER change another strainer for fear of this magnitude of a problem.

This is a car that my son bought as a project. The seal leaked as soon as we put gas in it after sitting for 10 years. I had no choice but to remove the screen.. That son my son is the one spending money on this so he has very little. He paid 600 for the car and not sure what a gas tank might cost?

Thank you but was particularly interested in the fitting within the tank pictured on the right. Probably will buy the tank from plyhammer but need to get the car running 1st.

The speed and references sensors are a 50/50 deal if bad... just go to the fire wall look under the ("Monkey") - (Bundle of wires and go down surfing in the center just off to the driver side on the back of the eng. block under the hot water valve! More than likely u will find the no spark prob. at the coil or the conectors (2) for ref. & speed in their (clip's) (plastic dry-rotted out and broken wires) that are mounted (bolted down just behind the intake manifold). Try Pelicans TShooting Forum thay got some examples and great color photos, if that doesn't help go to Porsche 944NA or 951 Turbo TSing Forum above!

Well the story is I went to the zoo sunday with my wife and the younger kids while my 17 year old ( the 944s owner) decided to take the sensors out as he read that could be the none starting issue.. Well he broke them but thats the idea so he can learn. Now gotta find some replacements

Itís $59 for the exact right thing with a new seal that will last you 10+ years of worry free service I would just buy a new one I just got one about 4 months ago thI s is the best place to buy Porsche OEM parts and cheapest anyware guaranteed.

https://www.******************.com/oem-parts/porsche-fuel-filter-m37x1-5-for-porsche-924-928-944-959-964-968-and-993-92820108104

However if your getting a new tank then before you install just remove the sensing unit and swirl some clean fuel around in there to flush it then spray brake clean in the big sensing unit opening to clean strainer thatís inside new tank. You might be able to get away with cleaning it from inside and running it as not to risk stripping that one as well. Or my recommendation would be to have the dismantler who you buy new tank from take it out so itís guaranteed to be ready for you to put new one in. I always put a dab of anti seez on the threads good luck
