Carb. fixed but tank not!!!

Hi guy's, thanks for the idea's!!!


The Carburetor is fixed now!! It was some rust powder; not in the float needle area but in one of the other small passages in the upper part of the Carburetor!!!

I also tried that gasket fix idea!!! Everything works perfectly now!!! NO LEAKS!!!

My only problem left now is that #@%*# fuel tank!!!

I tried to remove the tank before but the "filler tube" is seized onto the tank and won't come off without some major damage!!! That's why i was asking if anybody knew of a way to "clean a fuel tank (flush/seal) without removing the fuel tank from the vehicle"!!!!!

This is the only problem i have now... Any idea's????

Hoping against hope....
