I have been given a scruffy looking Atco De-luxe mid 1970 and have maybe discovered the fourth of the great lies which is, "It used to go very nicely."
The first thing I found was that the petrol tank is very rusty inside and looking on the Internet I found suggestions as follows:
1. Use a good fuel filter.
2. Fill it with White vinegar.
3. Use caustic soda.
I would welcome any suggestions.
I put some petrol into the tank, it leaked from every fibre washer. It looks as though it would be cheaper to replace the on/off tap but I want a brass one not a plastic one.
Many thanks in anticipation.
