Well, the pressure washer won't get started real soon. The fuel tank is full of rust particles! Good old Ethanol! Here's some pics. Luckily, this has a filter that screws into the tank and kept it from the carb. Bowl was a little nasty, but cleaned up okay with carb cleaner.

 

The funnel/filter after draining the tank. It has a fine screen in the bottom.

This was in the funnel.

This filter goes into the fill neck of the tank.

And this is after a short rinse with cider vinegar.

I went a bought a bottle of CLR to see if it help. May end up buying a new tank for it.

If all else fails, the tank and filter are only $25 plus shipping.

I shook the tank then looked inside with a flashlight. The CLR is doing a fine job. Almost looks new down in there again. May let it go overnight again to be sure I've got it all!

I got the pressure washer out and pulled the carb. That is a pain as you need to take 3 of the 4 engine mount bolts out and swivel the engine to ge3t the air cleaner off. Anyways, cleaned the main jet out and put it back together. It will run and the pump works fine, but the carb is dribbling fuel and there is no kit for it. So I just ordered a new carburetor. $35 to the door. But I can then use this for GT washing!

An update on these. I got the pressure washer running great. Been using the weedeater regularly. Sold the edger today for $125. That paid for the pressure washer parts and then some! I'm happy!
