Question about Garden
Old gas in tillers is always corroding the inside of the steel tank and the steel lines, clogging both the lines and filter and inlet at the top of the glass bowl. You can fix it by removing the tank and putting in some gas, some small stones and swishing them around to knock off all the rust scale, then replacing the steel lines with high temperature silicone fuel lines as used by radio control models for nitromethane motors. A new filter and a plastic gas tank avoid a lot of this rust clogging if you can get one to fit. If the rust has been sucked into the carb jet, use a bic pen tube with the refill removed and a small length of rubber hose to blow that out too. A good trick for small engines is to get a super tiny squirt bottle, remove the spark plug and squirt the electrode with gas. Replace and you will get about three revolutions of "firing" no matter what the condition of the carburator is.
