Flex Tape for leaks
« Reply #1 on: August 08, 2018, 11:34:00 AM »
I had a fairly significant water leak where the two body halves come together around the muffler.
It was a kinda nasty area to work in and I didnt want a repair that was too involved.   In other words I wanted as cheap and quick a "fix" as possible.
I went down to my local Canadian Tire store and purchased a roll of Flex Tape.
Cut four strips to size and stuck them on around the seam.    Damn sticky stuff!
Took the Argo out in the water twice now and it seems to be working. Still a small dribble comes in but if I had been a little more diligent with the tape application I doubt there would be any.
