I have a 1969 with the originial fuel tank. I believe that I have some trash in the tank. You can see small black dots on the sides of the tank. I started having a problem with the carb flooding out when the car is at idle. I had the carb rebuilt a few months ago. The car has been running good until about a week ago. My mechanic suggested that maybe some trash has got into a carb jet needle and is causing the flooding. He suggested cleaning the tank out and replace the fuel filter. Any suggestions on how to best clean the tank? I was thinking of pumping out all the gas and then cleaning the tank with some rags and wipe the dirt and junk out.
