1995 F250 rear fuel tank

I'm new to the forum and have searched it looking for this info with no luck. If this has already been answered please let me know.

I just inherited a '95 f250 7.3 from my father and he took all the secrets to this truck to the grave. i have fixed some minor problems with the truck but from what i remember I don't know the last time fuel was put in the rear tank. I know it has been at least 2+ years. Looking for some advice as to what to do to get the fuel tank back in working condition(cleaning or replacing the tank). the truck only has 206k on it but i do know the tranny is shot and also want to know the best options on replacing it(rebuid, reman from ford,etc...). its the last piece of my dad i have and don't want it to go to ruins.

Thanks for your time.

ya i hear ya there im sorry for your loss.

i only know of two ways to test the fuel tank out one being put some fuel in it and see what happens or two ie the safer way drop the fuel tank inspect the outside really good then try to open the top up where all the fuel lines come out and look inside since you know its been at least 2yrs id say it has gotten some condensation in it so look for rust in side and you cant see any signs of rust put a few gallons of fuel in it to see if it leaks he may have not used the rear tank because (and im just goin off of what i know from mine) the front tank is smaller in size and cheaper to fill as for the tranny you can get all the parts for it take apart as much as you can then take all the down to a trans shop and have them do the rest cause if you can get it all apart it will be cheaper to just have them put it back togather because you already got the parts and brought them to em so all you should have to pay is a few hrs labor if its a good shop and they know what they are doin of course
