    Ok I was thinking that I watched a video on u tube and the guy used vinegar to clean a tank and left the fuel sending unit on but he never coated the tank with anything thanks. Also I was thinking if since I have a 650 maxim and don't need the fuel sending unit I could make a blocking plate and seal it and pass the unit on to someone who needs it.
