Re: Hello Team Camaro...
Good project. Remove gas cao and smell.
If pungent, figure on dropping the tank and have it cooked out for cleaning or replacement of same tank - I'd look for cleaning.
Existing fuel lines, disconnect at carb and fuel pump and siphon with air gun, about a gallon of alcohol to clean hard lines. Then blow dry.
Carb will need removed and pulled apart for cleaning.
Figure on replacing any soft fuel hoses AND vacuum hoses, fuel filter, air filter, engine oil & filter, fresh battery, clean battery cable clamps, check brake fluid, and think about flushing brake fluid, trans fluid, and rear axle fluid after getting them hot from driving.
Remove spark plugs and squirt oil into cylinders and with plugs out, crank over engine spreading the oil about the rings for less friction on the starter during real engine cranking.
Once fuel tank is clean and installed, prime fuel line(s) by disconnecting fuel pump inlet and applying shop air into filler tube after adding fresh fuel. When fuel comes out, connect fuel inlet. You might pour 1/3 cup of fuel into carb bowl vent, the 1/4 inch diameter tube sticking out, to prime the carb.
You might also change belts as they will take a set after being motionless for 22 years, reccommended, not a requirement.
Enjoy the ride.
