Farmall C generator, gas tank

Pete Huber I am restoring a 1950 Farmall C (running great since day one!), and I would like help on two things:
1.) The generator may need rebuilding. Can this be done? Or ,do I find a rebuilt one? If so, where?

2.) Gas tank is very rusty. One place can acid wash and line with epoxy. Does this work? What are other approaches?

Thanks for any help! Pete

John M 1) Any good reputable starter/alternator repair shop can fix the generator.
2) Yes,it works just fine as long as the tank itself is in overall good shape and the metal is still thick.I had one get ruined because the metal was too thin and the acid ate right through it.

Hugh MacKay Pete: Another approach you can use with the gas tank, is anchor it solidly to a slow turning wheel or cement mixer. If you have a running tractor just jack one rear wheel and use that. If you feel more comfortable, just anchor it to rear wheel and go for a slow drive. Put about 2 quarts of pea stones in tank along with some vinigar. Rotate it for about 20 min. Then flush it and use. Remember it took 40 years for that first build up of rust. I know of a few of them have 20 years in since the stone treatment, without anymore problems.
