    "There is a very fine half dollar size screen in the bottom of the fuel tank, it can be accessed by removing top of the tank. Then you can completely clean out tank. I use hot soapy water, then wipe dry or use wet vac. Tank cannot pass dirt past this screen."

    Default "Your very welcome. Also I hav

    "Your very welcome. Also I have added small "in-line" filters just before the carb on some motors that I know will have unknown or different tanks connected to them. In the old days we had a fleet of the "double line" outboards at our resort and it was cheap insurance to protect the carbs from contaminants. Guests can do some funny things when they are out in the bush. Even some dirt can get on the motor fitting and if its not cleaned off before the line is attached, of course it can get into the carb."
