    I recommended that to the gentleman who is responsible for the library and the magazine editor recently. It would be a big benefit to all of us.

    Hey Gents,
    I contacted AMCA Mag Tech Editor Dan Margolien,
    He said he has the the articles and he will scan them when he returns on Sunday. When I receive the file I will post it here for those that search for this in the future.

    Dan states, "Chad, i used the process on my 1926 Harley tanks. Very satisfying. The single longest, most complicated part of my resto."

    Good to hear!! Since I have the 2nd half, it would be nice to have the complete article. I don't need it, but there may come a time!

    I sent Dan a reminder asking for the articles. I will post them here for download when I get them. I will also email them to anyone.
    I could make a YouTube video if I’m halfway successful since this seems to be a dark art.

    Sorry for the upside down images. For some reason when I try to rotate and save, they came out the same.

    I used this process on my 1926 Harley tanks and currently on 1913. Patience is a virtue. Also, although it comes at the very end, when pressure testing do not use 10 psi. Just 2 psi. I actually ballooned my tanks and they would not fit the frame and I have to hammer work them back. Get a fan to blow the fumes away, maybe a mask. There is a lot of tinning and soldering involved. A lot of fumes. I would be happy to provide more input if desired.

    Thanks Dan. I will try to get this into a single PDF file when I get my computer near some civilization.

    I actually just left Geer’s in Deadwood!

    Having attempted a similar repair myself, i too would be interested in this atricle.

    A quick google search found a post on the 101 Associations website that states:

    "For those aspirants ..........who are brazen enough to attempt their own tank refurbishment ..........there is a comprehensively in depth article, found in the 101 Associations Shop Manual. Found on Page 22A, it was compiled by our esteemed founder and Patriarch, George L. Yarocki. The Late George Yarocki, goes on to describe an in depth process"

    I would assume that this is the same materials but it would be interesting iff anyone has this 101 manual and could compare the two.

    John, it does indeed appear to be the exact same article with the same pictures!
