delaminating tank liner and rust
first post! so i've lurked around here for awhile reading and learning. this site is awesome to say the least! so here's my issue. i've got a 2000 drw cab and chassis truck with the 40 gallon aft axle metal tank. i've had some problems recently with lack of power, low fuel pressure. pulled the sending unit, cleaned the strainers, blew out fuel lines, cleaned fuel bowl, replaced the filter about a month ago. this worked great for awhile but slowly the problem returned so saturday i dropped the tank and i'm delaminating bad, alot of rust in the delaminated areas. now the cheapest replacement tank i can find is 700 clams and i don't have it. so my question is if anyone has tried a tank coating system and if it worked? like Kreem or Por-15, something like that. another thing i was thinking is i can get a 30 gallon tank (the long tank)for about 200 but i don't know if my sending unit will fit. i cleaned the tank as best i could, cleaned lines, sending unit strainers, fuel bowl, and put everything back together. runs like a champ right now but it's just a matter of time before i will have to do it again. any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. oh another thing i was wondering is if i did the hutch mod would the over sized filter be able to handle the delamination and rust enough were i could just replace the filter every month or so? uploaded a picture of the delaminated particles i strained from the fuel when emptying the tank. i also have a video i took of the inside of the tank but the site won't let me upload it. i dont think mp4 format is supported here.
