Default Re: Cleaning gas tanks?????

I used a Holley pump I had sitting around.I do not have pumps in the boat.After I used the pump I flushed it with good gas and sprayed with wd40.I kow the water sound bad but just get out all you can by lifting the front of the trailer.The alcohol will absorb the rest. If it has been sitting for any lenght of time without stabilizer it will start to go bad.

Our shop has two Racor 1000s Te'd together we run a high cap pump to move the fuel, the intake hose goes down the gas fill to suck out the fuel, and use another hose with a piece of tubing with the end flattened a bit to probe around the bottom through the sender hole to stir the crap loose. We run it out and right back in, use 1/2 hose and you will go through a box of filters but it does a decent job.
