RE: [T3] FI Fuel Tank restoration - revisited


Sorry must not have hit reply to all (Jim)


I am with Jim on this. My tank was quite rusty on the bottom and the screen
was somewhat plugged. I had my local radiator shop acid clean the tank. I
refused there offer to line the tank. I checked my overflow for leaks and
have now 4 years later seen nothing but a shinny tank interior from just
clean gas inside. Screen like new.

The main thing to understand is that the tank won't rust again as long as
you 
keep water out of it. Chances are that the overflow hose is cracked, and
those 
cracks let in water and dirt which caused the current problem. Make sure you

fix that hose before you put the tank back in service.
