I think the only option is a new flange. Even if you had enough meat in the top of the flange to drill and tap for a aftermarket fitting you would have to contend with the fuel connection.

Good luck Greg

Goodnight!!! I have this same problem today 2021, you will know if there is any way to get this new cover or there is an alternative that has been found over the years. Do you know where I can buy it?

There is 60 lbs. of pressure on that fuel line. Attempting to repair it can be met with disaster. If the repair fails you will spew fuel all over a hot engine resulting in a fire. Don't ask me how I know.

I tried to repair it with an epoxy that was for breaks in gasoline tanks and the result was that gasoline came out everywhere !!!! 😟😟. I went to hurt what is in PR and sent for her. now I have to wait for the piece.

As for the tank itself, epoxy don't stick to poly. Very few will actually stick to it, that includes JB Weld which is a form of epoxy. There are special adhesives for poly, or a product called PRC will also work. Plastic welding is another option using poly rod.
