In Topic: What do you use to clean your old, rusty, gunky gas tank?

Yesterday, 07:59 AM

A point in coating the interior of the tank:


If the tank is not completely clean and free of impurities and rust, the coating will not affix to the metal and will detach.  It will then be pulled into the fuel line, blocking the fuel filter.  In some instances, the coating material will clog the fuel pump and/or carburetor.



In Topic: Air cleaner bracket

I purchased from a Japanese seller the rear air cleaner bracket




One side of the bracket has both light blue and dark blue paint.  Is it probable that as the engine went down the production line the bracket was installed and partially painted to match the dark blue engine block, which masking the lighter blue of the air cleaner?


It would be great if someone on the forum could check their bracket for a similar paint scheme.

Originals are chromed steel, aftermarket are aluminum.  Both have advantages and disadvantages.
