    Default 504 TI fuel tank

    Is the tank in a ti different from a carby 504???
    also does anyone have advice about cleaning the brown muck lining the tank after 30 years???? ( i have to change filters after only 2000km!!!!! )
    And is it still possible to buy 8mm fuel hose with the braided cloth cover?
    thanks for your help

    To my knowledge the tanks are the same, since I had a TI engine put in a GL without any alterations to the tank internally (only added the electric fuel pump)

    As for the brown muck - went through that phase a couple of years ago that rumour had it was due to the unleaded fuel loosening the crud. Problem seems to have fixed itself over the last couple of years - yes needed to change the filter at short intervals eg 3000 Ks but problem went away after 6 months or so.

    Take the tank out, empty it, take out the fuel guage sender, fill it with about 2 cups of assorted small nuts and bolts, some acetone, dishwashing detergent and water, shake like mad till it's all pretty inside again. Rinse well, and allow to dry completely before reassembly.

    Hopefully you don't have too much rust and a bolt penetrates the tank though!

    Ti tank different - has a second feed for fuel return. I had to change the tank when converting a GL to LTi spec.

    You could use the GL tank, but would have to have the second feed braized on.

    As well as having the return line I think it has a larger outlet but it may not make much difference. I soldered two new lines into my tank and it worked ok but it wasn't quite on the bottom of the tank so it used to surge on a low tank. But at least I never ran out of fuel. The return line can also be fed into the filler tube. Make sure you have no leaks.
