some progress..

I took the carburetor to a mechanic and he did a few adjustments but he said that nothing was majorly wrong with the carb (at least not bad enough to cause the jeep not to run). He smelled the gas and almost lost his lunch. I guess my siphoning job wasn't good enough . So I'm going to drop the tank today but does anyone have any suggestions as to how to clean out the tank? Also, do you think it's necessary for me to replace the fuel line or should blowing it out be sufficient? I really don't want to have to replace the fuel line, but if I do, what is the easiest stuff to work with?

thanks, dan.

dropping the gas tank...

I'm trying to remove the tank and I'm running into a problem with some of the bolts:

I just want to make sure that these are the right bolts before I start getting more creative with my removal attempts.

Just did this yesterday, but I had the body off. I am assuming that this is not an option, so my suggestion is to get the longest breaker bar you can and put a wrench on the top of the bolt and ratchet the bottom. Get a long extension for the ratchet and you should be good.

I know it is tight, but a torch is not an option.

Is there something that I am missing here with the picture? I think what I said should work, but let me know if I have missed something here.

sounds good.

What you suggested sounds like my only option. I just wanted to make sure these were the correct bolts. time to go buy a length of pipe...
