Do you trust the builder and go on? Even though it can be a pain in the arm (LOL) to remove the tank, it really is the only way to know for sure. A spray bottle of soapy water, a balloon appropriately secured to one of the tank orifices and a 1psi squirt of air in the sealed tank is all you need to find out. If I were buying a second hand kit that was not flying yet this is what I would do.

Good Luck.
Thank you sir...
