After my last trip out as usual, I filled up the SMB with fresh diesel so while stored there is as little space for any moisture condensation.
A few days later while walking past the SMB I noticed a large puddle of diesel collecting on the ground. At first I just through it might be a fill hose loose but upon closer inspection here is what I found:
It appears that the Bilstein shock stem broke away from it's upper mount and has been hammering one of the corner seams of my oversized fuel tank. The top weld seam must now have a small crack and is allowing fuel to escape.
I've never had a shock mount stem shear off like this.
What I thought was going to be an easy fix of tightening a hose clamp has now turned into a major job requireing the removal of the tank for repair.
Anyone else had any experience with this type of problem?
