Ya, to fill the bowls, just use one of those mustard squeeze bottles with a nozzle and stick it into the vent tubes.
I'd drain all that old gas out of the tank and flush the tank and lines with thinner.
I have seen a hole punched into the lower corner of the tank with an ice pick to let the fuel/ thinner drain out, and then a screw coated with tank epoxy to seal the hole. Red-neck, but it works.
