I just drained the tank on my 76 GL for cleaning. Not NEARLY as bad
as I thought it would be. In fact, much of the tank is actually clean
bare metal. But there is some rust.
The worst problem I see is that the main pickup screen is badly
broken. (the reserve screen seems fine)
Any way to repair this?
Or just forget it and keep fresh fuel filters on the engine?

Leave it alone. Any repair to the tank would require removing the screen anyway.

filters and run it ! the screen only keeps out really big stuff anyway,( you're not planning on putting any big stuff in there, are you?)

Not that I know of, Scott! If I get any ideas about putting big stuff
in there, I'll ask about it here first.

You can cut the old tube and replace the strainer with a filter for a chain saw.Time consuming but doable.

I wish we had our old emoticons so I could better describe how funny that is. Good one offcenter.

Tom,

all of the old emoticons are available. Use the ADVANCED EDITOR, then Click on 'More' and expand the screen full size.
