Start with a gallon of Diesel and slosh that around a couple times a day for a week.  Might not need anything else after that.

Removed fuel tank, added a gallon of Evapo-Rust, and let it work for 24 hours, flipping the tank every hour (except while sleeping).  Looking at the inside of the tank, I'm comfortable giving it a shot.  Now I need a fuel pump and a new O-ring for the fuel pump housing.  I see a lot of people have had good luck with Walbro pumps.  I'll probably go that route.  I see on the Walbro site they don't have an option for 200SX's other than B14's.  Am I wrong in assuming the Z31 pump is the same?

I am using one for a 240sx and it wires in just fine just have to secure it into the old pump location as they are  bit smaller, but has been solid on my sev6.

Thanks for the tip.  Walbro shows the same part# for S13 and Z31, so that looks like the one.

Good news and bad news.

The bad news is the only other running V6 S12 that I know of in the area went to the junkyard a couple weeks ago.  I'd been talking to the owner on FB and I knew he had spun a bearing but it was a surprise when it popped up on my LKQ alert. 

The good news is Henge got the same alert and was out at the yard quickly.  He got a bunch of stuff of of it and snagged the fuel pump and the entire housing for me.

I tested the pump this weekend and it's good, so I just need a new O-ring, need to drill out one of the fuel tank mounting bolts that snapped off, go buy new fuel line hose to replace all the rubber lines, and I can start putting it back together!

I was under the SE this weekend working on one of the fuel tank mount points where the bolt snapped off when removing the tank.  It did not go well.  Left-handed drill bits and extractors didn't work, even after heating it with a torch.  So I figured I'd tap threads into the body of the bolt itself and just insert a smaller bolt.  Snapped off the tap.  Gave up.  I'm going to have to rig up an alternate mounting point for that end of the strap.  Work will continue next weekend.
