I saw somewhere about it and did some research...too easy to not try. I had an old 48 qt cooler doing nothing so I set it up for cleaning my gas tank on the 2414 PK......seemed to work ok but limited space and a leaky drain had me looking for something else. I`ve had a plastic food grade barrel about the size of a 55 gal drum on my carport for years....Thought about making a rain barrel out of it but the bright yellow wouldn`t fit in my daily sight from the house......
I cut the top out of it and got 4 of the 3/8 rebar fence posts for the anode I had been using around the garden for pulling strings for row lay off...got it going ...really worked good on the tank. I have the dash and the gas tank back in it again work on the rust that was under the layer of factory seal coat of some kind that was on it. In the inside of the tank was little surface rust but mostly pretty clean.
I was wanting to put the floor pan in it but it is too big on the end where the battery sits and damaged it.
I thinking about one of the square 250 gallon plastic tanks you see with the lightweight piping frames everywhere now and cutting the top out of it. You could put a whole lot of parts there at the same time.
I`m curious about the 2 amp charger on the bigger tank and the amount of baking soda you add. .I used I cup per instructions and increased to 4 cups in the bigger drum. I sort of understand the electrical 'Physics' but I`m kind of like Tool Time Tim Allen.....if 2 amps is good then 10amps has to be better ...right?? Just kiddin` .....electric and water makes me nervous any way.
I also saw in my research ( Google) about some people using cookie sheets as the anode ? Providing a Sheets of electrons I guess. I`ve got a couple of 4 foot flouro light reflectors that could be added to the rebars.... if it would enhance the performance and speed of the rust removal.
Just thinking out loud again and curious if anybody has any experience with this ?
