Main reason the '83 kept dying

Recommended Posts

My dad and i pulled the tank today since we had a gas leak, strong fumes in the cabin and a fuel filter full of rust.  This car sat too long before we got it, plus the tank hasn't been filled all the way for years because of the leak, leaving too many opportunities for condensation. Also, booooo ethanol. The filler neck hose was badly deteriorated and the fuel line fitting on the tank was leaking.  The sending unit is trash. The anti-burp baffle is corroded.  Someone was in there recently and replaced the fuel return hose. They were kind enough to use body sealer to put the fiberglass panel back on lol...ugh...and many of those screws were stripped. They did not even put the nuts back on to secure the back of the seat!  Just wanted to post the pix in case they help anyone else.  My poor gas tank!  Can you believe that pile of rust from the filter? Yikes.

Would a purchase inspection have uncovered these flaws?

Probably not.
