Biff, I've got 4 of the Nato style Barrus tanks to 'clean up' myself and I assume they're in a similar condition to the Macrib ones so any tips on what you use to clean/restore them would be much appreciated.

I understand that the internal gubbins is prone to disintegrate (haven't investigated mine yet) and the external fittings look a bit 'barnacled' so any hints/tips with regard to this aspect would be particularly well received.

Cheers

Morning, these tanks are pretty well made, the pickup pipe on the other hand ain't, I've had a quick look and the exterior fitting will unbolt. The pickup seems to degraded in petrol so that's what I started with in the tank, seems logical that if it melted it the first time it should loosen it up a second time, I'm going to get at it with the steamer when I have a minute

I've spoken to biff & I'll be down on 13th to wire it all up. Biff has sent battery dimensions so that'll come up with me & I'll make up a new set of 35mm tinned battery cables to the engine too.
