dirty petrol tank cheap cleaning that works

Common upgrades - A-Series mods, brakes,wheels, handling, interior.
well after 25mls it started in starve of fuel , i have a in line filter that was blocked ,,, no problem as its a cleanable type .

the has been oft road for 20 years .

this has happened again so today the tank is out and i am in the process of cleaning it out.

drained off all the fuel got the tank out and put in 3gallon of brick acid blocked up the filler hole and the feed pipe .

i am now turning the tank every hour it will take around 4-5 hours to clean but should be fine when done

the acid cost around £8 per gallon and can be saved for future use !!!!

yesterday i removed the old petrol pipe and fitted a new 8mm cunifer one ,

i also fitted the pump near the petrol tank ,, it was starving on a long hill , problem now fixed .

i wasn't sure if the old pipe was partly blocked ,, and most pumps work better pushing than pulling !!!

i am now running the traveller as my works van !!! done over 500mls in the last week and is running well .

brakes are now bedded in and are good .,,,i love driving it ,
