Cleaning old reservoir tank from the Perkins motor??
Ok tried to get all the crap out of the tank with boiling water and soap (from coffee pot at work) and then tried washing it out and then tried power washing it but am still getting crud out from it. This is the old reservoir tank from the Perkins motor. It is used to keep any air locks from the cooling system on our motor. This is because if the hot water heater is higher than the motor it can cause an air lock. You install a reservoir tank to stop this.
Trying to find a place that does radiator cleaning now-a-days is difficult. They are just throw away items now.
We found one here and I will bring this tank in for cleaning.

When it was installed in the boat
You can see the black crap out on the dock
Lots of it now
We keep cleaning - power washingHad this up in the air and power washed it and on it's side etc. Damn thing :)
Not much but it is still in there
It is also oily inside. We do not want to hook this tank to a brand new clean engine cooling system in our boat unless it is completely clean.
If this does not work (the radiator shop) then we can purchase a new one from
