Default Air leak?

Ok last week car ran fine, so today the idle jumps up when i start the car so i checked linkage an it was fine. So i noticed air in the fuel line an i think that is the problem? But also the fuel line a couple times seemed fine an the motor would idle fine an then start to rise to were it would engage clutch an start to roll? So i will replace the lines an see if that work, any other suggestions?

Also on the tank where the nipple screws in there is a small crack on the top side, could this be the cause of the air in the lines? Looks like it cracked when they screwed the nipple on? Could i buy something like a epoxy an fix it or is a new tank needed?

Default Air Leak

I tried several different epoxys to fill a crack on a tank and found that most epoxy's will not stand up to the Nitro.
I did have good results with the two part putty epoxy that you nead together even though it looked like a monkey job.
However for the time and money spent trying to repair the tank and still wondering if it will last and did that work I would suggest a new tank.
If nothing else that will eliminate a problem for sure no guessing.

epoxy - $8
time spent two hours
no leak new tank - priceless
