Default Re: 57 Tbird fuel tank sender

OK, thanks everyone.
I've just spent 5 years restoring the old girl and despite the care during body resto it seems there is probably blast grit in the tank and lines. I've rebuilt the carby twice and both times after initial starting and road testing the carby has flooded over due to both float chamber seizing up. the fuel filter and bowl have a superfine (like talcum powder) white grit which is passing through the paper element. I intend to remove the sender and do a full tank drain and wash to try and get it clean. I will remove the sender unit during cleaning and use the port to inspect the tank also. I will also flush the line from tank to filter inlet. If I have to replace the tank it would cost me about A$1500.00! I don't know what else to do.what else to do
