    Do you get the same thing when you run off the other tank?
    All that crud is prolly in the carb. You might have to take it apart and clean everything.

    Don't hit me, Mr. Moderator... I'll go back on topic... I swear![​IMG]

    It sounds like you need to replace both of your gas tanks. I have a set of side saddle tanks from my 86 that I want to get rid of. Give me a holler, they're in perfect condition.

    lol, my nova has a rusted out fuel tank, so I currently have 3 fuel filters on it, and have no problems with it!! I've tried 1 then 2, and now there is no junk sticking between the needle and seat (?) of my carb.!!
