you can have it cleaned and recoated. May be a good option unless you also plan on going to a EFI etup and the normal associated fuel system.

Some info and pics would really help with figuring out what you're working with now, so we could help. If it's too rusty it will be money wasted trying to clean and seal it.

There are various sealants available that you can pour in the tank, and they will seal all the bad stuff inside. I can't remember the exact product we used, years ago, but I'm sure my boss ordered it from a Hemmings catalog.

We did five or six tanks like that, while I was there, and it worked fine. Try kbscoatings-US.com
