An overdue update:
Since my last post, I have done the following:
- replaced the spark plug wires
- replaced the spark plugs
- changed the oil
- drained the fuel out of the tank
- misc. interior fixes
I now am trying to figure out the best strategy for what to do with the fuel tank. There were some serious duct flakes coming out of the tank (drained from the bottom) when I emptied it. My initial desire was to pull it out, and either have it cleaned or clean it myself. But this thing is proving to be a beast and does not seem to want to come out. Anyone have any experience with this?
