I just drained the gas out of it. SO NASTY!!!! I went out to the river bottoms to drain it into a couple buckets so it would not smell our property up. Last time I had it this bad I spilled some and it stunk for a month. Surprisingly this stuff still burned. Not well but did burn. I lit both buckets and burned it all off so it would not stink so bad. I did spill a little on the trailer so I hope that don’t stink for to long.

I ran a video scope down the gas tank filler neck and it looks very clean inside. I can’t see everywhere in the tank this way but the areas I can see are very nice. I hope to flush out the antifreeze next. I pulled the water pump off to be able to get it flushed out easier. I was going to send the pump in to be rebuilt but decided to wait. I want to get this running as good as i can before I start the process of sending stuff off to be rebuilt. I want to know what I am up against first.
