The price of a new tank on eBay is now around $90.00 unpainted. $115 painted. I put one on my 2n and it fit fine. I would opt for an unpainted tank.

If you can get your tank boiled out with a caustic solution try that but finding radiator shops that that do that are hard to find. They now only R&R, and do recoring and leak repairs on older copper core radiators and metal fuel tanks. If you find a shop that does boil outs it will probably cost most of what a new one will.

DON'T use any of the tank sealers, POR 35 or any other sealer. Your machine is garage kept probably full of fresh fuel, so little chance of water accumulation from bad fuel or condensation. Additionally the sediment bulb is designed to trap water.
