you could try a weak mix of water and muriatic acid. i would wear a face mask to be safe.
Personally, I would take your tank to a local Radiator/Gas Tank Repair Shop. They can boil it out (they use acids of some sort) and then Red-Kote it. I had my '48 - Ellie done and haven't looked back in almost a decade by now I would think -- it has been a long time.
How To Upgrade A Cub Fuel System
Search this site. There are a couple of good products that you can use to coat the gas tank interior and some tips on how to do it yourself.
I have an excuse. CRS.
having a rad shop do it for you is better but if your on a budget you can do it for under $10 with the acid.
If you want to clean and seal it yourself you can drain it all out then add about 1 gallon of pea gravel and shake well.
I've seen some strap the tank to a rear wheel of a tractor jacked up to let it tumble. I myself have straped them to the rack of an ATV to shake while riding.
Then I picked up my Red Coat sealer at the local welding shop for about $24
That was enough to probably coat 2 tanks.
When using the Red Coat you'll need some fast dry thinner to add.
Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote.
Probably the most important thing is to have a clean gas tank...I was going to go the Red Cote route, but I attacked the issue as Yogie suggested with an aggregate to loosen up the rust and that worked wonders...good luck!
Three Hands - I sent you a PM about a can of Red Kote I'm not using. Al D

Everything's better with Golden Retrievers, an old Ford V8 and a Cub!
I've put 1/4 inch nuts in a cub tank, and left it in the back of the pickup, for a couple of weeks. Shined it nicely. Ed
