I'll grant that you can't get everything out of the tank, but if you do this a couple of times, you will get a great deal of the junk out of the tank. I have also put a second glass sediment bowl in the fuel line, like one from a 55 Thunderbird or such...put it level in the fuel line and put a good sized magnet in the bowl...the car will run much better and the magnet will catch lots of fine stuff that would clog up the carburetor.

PLEASE do not do this.... unless your life insurance and homeowners insurance and car insurance is paid off and you got an extra life in your pocket...

shop vac + explosive fumes = huge bang.
