Ah...I did not know the tank sat for years without fuel. That is a different animal indeed and CAN cause rust. When the temperatures go up and down, summer and winter, condensation inside an unused tank makes water vapor condense in there. Rust=yes.

Maybe your idea of steel wool inside and a good wash and rinse aren't so bad, after all. Just make sure you re-install the tank soon afterward and fill that sucker to the neck pipe with good fuel. And keep it there for a while. You might have to change the filter once, but after that should be okay.

I don't suppose you could find another gas tank in your area, could you Aronxeros?

There's a number of products made to remove rust from gas tanks and seal them afterwards, POR-15 is one of them. I've used their Metal Ready on a variety of parts and fasteners and it definitely removes the rust. Haven't used the tank sealer but others swear by it.

Ok I got busy yesterday after working on the truck. I deleted the smog system. Running way better now without that huge vacuum leak. The part of it that looks like a brake booster fell apart when I tried to loosen the first bolt. It was entirely rusted through. I haven't looked locally for a parts truck, but I'm trying to keep cost down as much as possible. I plan on dropping the tank to fix the fuel sending unit in the near future and will re assess the tank situation.

Next question is it needs tires super bad but I'm down to little to no budget for now. I found these on craigslist will they work until I can get something better. Basically the same bolt pattern but what about the center hole? Looks like they were stock 2000 to 2004 tacoma/ tundra wheels.

I've seen others using older Toyota wheels, and his listing doesn't show what year his come off of. For $70, it's worth the drive to see.\

Chevy wheels fit, too, so you could use something like these $200 sets:

https://wichita.craigslist.org/wto/d...610213533.html

This guy has 3 Z-71 wheels:

This guy's 3 wheels will fit. I can tell by that massive center opening:

https://wichita.craigslist.org/wto/d...599000889.html

What's with 3 wheels? I mean, who out there only needs 3?

The used tire shops here want $40 per tire. I can get a new set for $10-15 more. Mine calls for 235 75 15 on the door frame. I figured for $70 if they fit they would last long enough to get new ones in the right size.
