I have a old tomos that will run but crap from inside the tank keeps clogging the carb enough so it won't idle on it's own

I have already tried evapo-rust...that left weird sheets on the lower inside/bottom that almost looked like peeling paint. I tried scrapping, and used a pressure washer.

Then I put in vinegar for 24 hours and cleaned as best I could.

Where there is bear metal it doesn't look bad. But there are still areas with the pealing paint stuff and there are larger particles now in the fuel filter and smaller stuff is causing it not to idle.

Did these tanks have some sort of lining that I ruined by using the evapo-rust?

Any ideas of what to do now?
