  • 8n fuel tank
  • Just purchased an 1951 8n.
    Just starting to go through it.
    Fuel tank has about 2 quarts of fuel that has the varnish smell.
    Seems to be clear of rust from what i can see but it does have a somewhat gritty/powdery residue covering the inside.
    What would be the suggestions on how to handle/clean this?
    I have mineral spirits in the cylinders and will be draining and replacing oil and filter as well as oil bath.
    Thank you.

  • Years ago, I took mine to a local radiator repair shop and they steamed it out. I have not had issues with it.
