Just bought a "WC" 1935,wondering if anyone has taken the gas tank off and took it to a radiator shop to let them boil it out? I have lots of junk in there.Not sure if putting in E85 and 1/4" nuts,then shaken it up, would clean it up enough

I sure hate to give advise, but I would first give it about 5-6 gallons of vinager and let it set for a week. I have a cement mixer fixed up for that purpose, then I ran into the vinager thing. So far I have never went back to the cement mixer, and I don't have to remove it off the tractor for a plus.

Seems like it would take a lot of shaking to get it clean- I mount them on/in a cement mixer and let it run. Nuts/bolts are a good idea, they can be retrieved with a magnet, while rocks cannot. Some also mount them on a tractor wheel during fieldwork. My luck, it would fall off and I'd drive over it. New problem.

Wish I had a cement mixer! Anyway,that does give me some ideas,yes,I read about the nuts on the Case forum,and have used it on a Combine engine tank,and that is just shaking it,leave it on my bench,walk by it and give it a few.Yes my luck it would fall off and I would drive over it too! Thanks for replying.
