Anti Squeak for Gas Tank Recs
Posted by: zfitch ()
Date: October 24, 2022 04:07PM

Currently replacing the whole brake system in my LM. Since that requires removing the gas tank for proper (less fuss) installation, I'm considering replacing the anti-squeak material that was on the gas tank.

Any recommendations of where I could purchase anti-squeak material or substitute?

I know Clark's sells the material. But preference would be from a local auto store or big retailer (trying to avoid shipping delays), if folks are familiar with any that carries a decent product.

Thanks in advance!

You could probably make one from a Bicycle Inner Tube if you happen to have one lying around.

If memory serves, it isn't much more than a couple strips of rubber but I could be mistaken.

Is roofing felt thick enough? Maybe doubled up?

I use it doubled as long as you can find 30# roof felt. Or you can or quadruple 15#.

The more plies of roofing material the more likely it is to shift in its placement. If you want to use rubber, then I would suggest roll roofing rubber. Trom what I remember, the original was some type of heavy paper material.

When I replaced the gas tank in my '65, Clark's was out of the anti squeak material. I went to So-Cal Speed Shop & purchased the Webbing that is put between the body & frame on a '32 ford chassis.Tank in color, 2" X 25'

I would think anything rubber would cause a squeak.

But, if it is in stock a Clark's, you will have it in just a few days & it will be correct.

Anyone know where the original anti-squeak material was located? I'd like to put the material in the same spots.
