So here is where I’ll keep the updates as I work through this monster I’ve come to tame. At first you’ll see it looks like a fairly nice ride to be 35 years old. Probably what has helped it the most is it has set for over 10 years in a basement. So let’s begin……

So the first order of business was to get it running. So I put a new carb on it and cleaned the tank out with vinegar and baking soda/distilled water. Well this started the decent into the black hole. Wound up with about half a dozen holes in the tank. One on the very bottom and and 4 or 5 on the side. I put some JB weld tank weld on it. So far that has worked. I also put a fuel filter with new fuel line on it. Only using non ethonal gas with Sta Bil additive. I also have it a new plug, air/oil filter

Wish I had took a pic before I fixed this. The used about an inch long piece of garden hose in the top of air box in 3 holes. I put a rubber plug in it and sealed it up. Plus the other craziness I came across so far
