British Seagull petrol tank wanted!

The picture says it all?

Does anyone have a spare petrol tank for me?

Click on the picture to see what a mess the tank is.

My spares supplier says in his 25 years of working with the British Seagull engine he has never seen the filler neck ripped out!

What is hidden under the brazing I have no idea?

The engine is a 5hp size and while its in a bit of a mess right now, will run once I have serviced it and fitted the new parts it needs. It may become a full restoration, the owner can tell me what he wants now he has my first report.

Another Vaal Dam and fresh water only engine, I think so.
