my gas tank for my b has rust in it. I would not generally care but the rust keeps my carb clogged up. it appears that someone sprayed fiberglass around the bottom of the tank in the past to cover some hole or something.I have tried to clean the tank and put a new filter on now other than replacing the tank is their anything else I can do please help.

Yep - inline fuel filter. Mine's a clear one from Car Quest - I cut the fuel line bewteen the air breather body and the sediment bowl, bent one end of the cut fuel line up at a 45 degree angle, bent the other end down at a 45 degree angle, and added an "s" of fuel hose between them. I put the filter in the middle of this fuel hose. Works great and doesn't cost much to try. The sediment bowl stops large particles of sediment - not fine rust flakes. (all this at the advice of another AC fan on the forum - I was initally skeptical since there is a strainer in the sediment bowl but it sure works.)

It also gives you an added benefit - it allows some "give" between the engine and the sediment bowl (fuel tank) which can only be a good thing. They shouldn't move much relative to each other but this will take any strain off the sediment bowl.

thanks I will try that.My cousin runs a garage and told me today that he will boil it out like a radiator and line it if i need him to. this inline fuel filter sounds like a more cost efficient fix.

I bought the filter, 4 clamps, 4 feet of fuel line (just in case), and a 1/4" brake line and compression fittings to make a new fuel line for about $11 or so from Car Quest. Cheap enough to try without hurting anything - and making a new fuel line allows you to keep the original just in case. If you make a new fuel line make sure you have a tubing bender - you'll need it.

I HAD A SIMILAR PROBLEM RECENTLY WITH A D17. I TOOK THE TANK OFF, POWER WASHED THE INSIDE, AND BOUGHT A LIQUID LINER FROM THE AUTO PARTS STORE.I THINK IT COST AROUND 30.00 PROBLEM SEEMS TO BE FIXED.
