Today, I started to tear down the parts off my 1949 1/2 ton truck. 1st. I jacked up the front end and placed jack stand. From there, I went to take the gas tank off. It was not hard of a job to take off. While I was loosing the the brass nut, I notice water in the tank. Ok, I thought I will call down town to find some one to hot tank the inside of my gas tank. Nobody wanted the job. They said that EPA prevents them from cleaning the tank. Ok, Does someone out thier have a nice process of cleaning gas tanks. Note. My gas tank looked good, but it had that varnish smell. Please give your inputs on cleaning method so that I can clean the tank myself. I would like to do this process safely, and corret.
