    I'll be replacing the old fuel tank on my 60 this weekend (previously replaced in '95 due to the recall) and was wondering if there is anything in particular I need to know other than removing all the gas first and not smoking while I work. The previous owner apparently let it sit too long. I basically have a tank full of YooHoo.

    Also, does it matter what type of fuel filter you use on a 60? I couldn't find the one that was recomended, but I found one that looks almost identical to the one in my truck right now.

    Thanks.

    You can also take the gas tank if not rusted out and such to a radiator shop. They can clean eat and fix anything that might be wrong with it without the cost of a new gas tank hopefully.

    If youi think the innards of the tank it OK, then just remove drain plug & drain the goopy stuff.

    Using clean gas & a small funnel, remove fuel supply line at fuleter and 'backflush' line from tank.

    Only problem with removing tank : all the littel and medium size tubes conecting tank to 'world' maybe brittle & snap...have replacements on hand. The filler tube, by now, is as hard as a rock....
