I’m having trouble with my fuel supply to my M-60. Last season my fuel filter would collect all sorts of sludge from the tank. It would overwhelm the filter and end up clogging the carb. No problems once I cleaned the carb though. I added a disposable inline paper fuel filter downstream of the primary filter that has helped but I’d like to clean the sludge out of my tank. It is an aluminium 20-gallon tank with a filler pipe from the cockpit sole. I should have pulled the tank out when I had the engine out for a rebuild last year but I can’t do it now. Any suggestions apart from the obvious dumping carb cleaner etc into the tank?

I've used laquer thinner and a hand full of metal washers to tumble in the tank when cleaning.

Have used "pliobond" for years on cycle tanks. If interested will describe how and where to located the product.

Yes I am interested in pliobond. I did manage to get the tank out eventually and put some acetone in and added a handful of nuts and shook them around. I got some of the sludge out but the bottom wasn't completely cleaned. Maybe I should use a steam cleaner.
