    when I pulled the tank out I took out the filler neck, and it was rusted inside and out-so i wire wheeled and sanded the outside, and have gotten the dremel inside, but there is still some surface rust on the inside and have about 3 hours total on the inside of this b*tch-is there anything I can soak it in to remove the powder and surface rust?

    thanks

    Eastwood..

    I saw some stuff like that in the Eastwood catolog..can't remember the name of it--something like "Rust-Solve" or similar..never used it,so I can't comment on how good it might work..phosphoric acid is used in "Naval Jelly",and many "rust converters",if you can find any locally..

    Too bad you didn't get this car sooner--the boneyard I worked at had several old caddys,including at least one 1962 model..gas tank would likely have been junk,but maybe a filler neck might have survived..could you make a new one from conduit, and solder it in place of the original?..we did that on a few antiques we couldn't find tanks for..used the gas cap portion of the old filler neck,welded or brazed to a length of conduit,bent to the right shape..:crazy: ..
