Yeah the cylinder has been soaking in PB blaster since I got it. I did shake up the tank with some nuts and bolts in it when I first got it, and I got out a concerning amount of rust. Then I flushed it with water/air/evaporust and now gas. But I mean it still holds liquid so I guess I'm good. I am probably going to have to purchase a new carb, which is gonna be like $125 unless I can find someone on here with one. Thanks!
