I pulled my fuel tank to install the draw for my Espar D2 and found the flakes from delimitation. Thereís quite a lot of flakes in the tank and the pick-up screen (Photos below or gallery here
Iíve been doing research on what to do and am looking for some advice from those who may have dealt with the problem. Hereís what Iíve come up with:
Boil and refinish current tank - Seems like its probably the most cost effective, but i am not sure if its the best option. Looking around, I need to find a good shop. I live in a small town but Iím close-is to Portland, OR. Anyone know good of a good shop there?
Ford OEM Tank - It is going to have the same coating (right?) and be fairly spendy. This seems like the least attractive option
Aftermarket tank - Brand new tank without the worry of future delamination, but more expensive. I looked at aero tank (40 gallon!) and spectra tank (would need this one cut to accommodate 4x4). Does Ujoint still make one?
Also, in addition to a new tank, what else should I be doing?
Fuel filter? (have it and will be replacing to see if there are flakes in it)
Hutch Mod? / New sending unit?
Sorry for all the questions, Iím pretty overwhelmed with this.
Any advice would be much appreciated.
Oh, and the van is a í02 7.3 RB Quigley e350.
