Will I have got my 2000 TC running after putting new rings in it but I am having trouble getting fuel up to the Carbs, and there seem to be a number of issues involved. Firstly there is only one fuel line connected, the main line. I was going to swap this over to the reserve line which had been cut and blocked off, I removed the plug and no fuel came out, I tired blowing air into it, and that did not help. The Fuel line which does work has been cut and has soft rubber hose in it in places, and there are 2 fuel pumps currently on the car, the mechanical one, and an electric universal one. The Mechanical one has been rebuilt.

I supect the tank has lots of rust in it. Can anyone please advise who to send it to to get it cleaned out and sealed, and in doing that is there any issues with shipping, ie will UPS of Fedex take it?

Also would anyone out there have a good set of original fuel lines, or can they be made from hoses and fittings from the local parts store. I need the one from the fuel selector to the fuel pump, the one to the carb is good, and the two to the tank. Also would anyone have a good fuel sender unit. Mine may be repairable though. I am in upstate NY.
