Triumph Herald 1147cc Fuel Tank


Recommended Posts


Hello everyone, and all good wishes for 2023.

My petrol tank is leaking and have drained it and taken it out.

Can anyone help with:
Plan A  refurbed or good 2ndhand tank

Plan B  Lining it with something - I seem to remember Demon Tweeks do a product - has anyone used it/is it any good?

Plan C   Any other suggestions

new tanks are avilable  eg  td fitchetts  

have you found a local radiator /tank repairer     ( search yellow pages etc)  we have one in Luton charge around £140 

eg  radiator repairer luton - Search (bing.com)

internal sealing products    can work or become another nightmare if the process fails to adhere properly  

there are mixed views on using a sealer and also depends on how bad is the leak area

they do have a web site but it operats via club HQ and TDF are selective about whats on it  

Clives right a phone call and man in brown smock rolls the card index and walks down the wharehouse rows of racked parts and brings it to the counter 

here is a link to the website   Triumph Parts And Spares - From T.D. Fitchett Limited (tdfitchett.co.uk)

no tanks showing but they are listed in the TDF advert in the courier mag .

note fitchetts probably supply most of the main parts dealers as they have the press tools

They are best contacted by phone. Huge supplier/manufacturer of Triumph stuff, but quite old fashioned.

i used frosts tank liner  expensive though it worked . You must follow the instructions to the letter .

I would go for Rust with slosh . Rust has a good reputation

Can you send me the name and address of your Luton repairer.


auto rads  
Portland Road 141, Luton LU4 8AY 
i would give them a call and check they still do fuel tanks            but there must be some places closer to you  
marks 948 tank will fit /the same     13/60 has the larger vitesse tank   
fitchetts only make the herald sized tank.
