Adding to Roland's advice, if you are not near a rad shop that
does this job, you can do it yourself without too much trouble, I did my P5.
Remove the tank and let it dry out well first then put in a couple of pounds
of small nuts bolts screws etc (some use gravel) metal is easier to remove,
you can shake out most of it and then use a magnet on a stick to check for
strays. Once I filled my tank I went out every day for a week and for about
fifteen minutes shook the hell out of it
Once I was satisfied it was clean and empty I used a vacuum for the last
traces of dust. From a local auto shop I purchased a gallon of Kreem it
comes as a kit, cleaner, etcher and sealer. ( also found in motorcycle
shops) Following manufactures instructions dump each application in the
tank making sure all the outlets are sealed, slosh all around thoroughly
until you are sure the whole inside is clean and then coated. Let it dry and
reinstalled tank with a new sender unit.
