We started connecting  all the fuel lines and do a fuel leak test only to find the fuel leaked out the bottom .
we naturally suspected a leaking tank ..

However, The tank wasn't even connected to the bus ..
It's the wrong year, so we pulled it to  find it doesn't go with this bus it belonged to  a 1974 MCI 8 Bus with a Pony tank,
note the opening in the bottom.
We also noticed the tank had been repaired  one time before ..Not a good sign . So we decided to pull this one out and locate another good used one .

Note the top vent was taped up
