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.

Very dangerous to do even after draining tank, Metal will still hold fumes and can explode
, not many people will weld on a drained cleaned out tank!!!!!!!!!!!!!
