Default EZGO Gas Tank & Carb Kit ?????

I started to work on the 1997 TXT the gas tank has some sludge on the bottom of tank I want to get rid of , ANY IDEAS? I removed 99% of all the old gas.

2) The engine is a Robin EH 29C do they make a Carb rebuild kit for that Carb?

I would try something like acetone or maybe carb cleaner in the tank.

A carb kit is available http://cartpartsplus.com/product_inf...7f7287a723649b

I looked at PEP BOYS today for some liquid carb cleaner but, I couldn't find any? Thought about acetone but will it harm the plastic tank?

I saw the Carb kit is my engine a 295cc ? or greater?

For the gas tank, a rag on a stick is about the best way to clean it

There is not a whole lot to the carb, if its not wore out, I would just clean it up real good and see if that solves the problem.

Funny you say that but I taped a rag to a stick thinking I would soften it up and rub the rag over it but, it's pretty thick!! I thought if I pour something in the tank to soften it up and add a little new gas it might get rid of it?

Try some paint thinner.

You should pull the tank out of the cart so its easy to work on. If its that bad its going to take awhile to get clean. I would try very hot soapy water or just keep running hot water in it, the hot water will make the plastic expand a different amount than the sludge maybe helping the sludge come free from the bottom. paint thinner may work great also, I guess it depends on whats stuck in the tank.
Oh and yes, your engine should be a 295
