It run's!!!!! albeit briefly... with a small fuel supply.... actually I should say I'm certain it will run

I changed to oil and oil filter.  The old oil looked great.

A bit of a snag...

The fuel tank, although it looks very nice on the exterior, looks, on the interior, as if it were part of the Titantic (in it's current condition)

Too many comma's?

Seriously, the idea of cleaning this thing is not an option. I need to source another CX500 Deluxe fuel tank

Also, QUESTION - what petcock (and source) are we using when converting to a manual petcock?


  1. What about Creme, Michael? Tanks can be saved if they're not porous.

  2. Electrolysis may be the way to go
