Replace fuel lines if you suspect rust-through anywhere. Otherwise, if
they're clear, leave them.
Clark's and auto suppliers generally sell a coating for the inside of a
gas tank. If you have the tank out of the car, you can/should apply this
coating to end the problems you report permanently. I live in the tropics,
so can't speak to tank preservation in the arctic (I'm guessing about a lot
of things, including your location and your last name), but I think I would
fill the tank with premium fuel AND stabilizer (fuel stabilizer - chemical
sold cheaply at hardware and auto-supply stores). If you use stabilizer,
your car will be all gassed up at the beginning of your next driving season.

I am cleaning my 65's fuel tank. A couple simple questions with not so
Do I leave the tank empty until spring, or do I refill all the way up. I
am about to put this one up for the season. Will drive around with a fuel
cell. Which will cause the least condensation problems. It will be in a
dry, but unheated garage.
The car would run fine, then no power, then fine. The fuel tank was
cleaned last 8 years ago. The sock was clogged with junk.
Do I replace the fuel line also. As far as I know its never been done.
