Old Rider, you have been quiet on the product you used to seal your tank.
It wasn't by chance, Kreem?

No it was Bill Hirsh tanksealer.
By the way since there is a company that is specialized in chroming  nickelplating  goldplating and more not far from where i live .I mailed them this morning and asked if they could strip out the liner and also if they could either chrome or nickel plate the inside ,but the answer was they could not

Old Rider,

No apology needed, here!  You are doing better in English that some native-born USA speakers.   :yes: 
The English people (UK) might say the USA population does not speak English, anyway.   :rofl2:

If you can talk your way around any issue here, we will be happy to help, maybe with the "correct" terms, if nothing else.

P.S. Life is too short, and health is too valuable, to ride on cheap parade-duty tires.

Thanks for that and I'm glad there is a spell check feature on the forum :yes:

I have found spell checking to be my worst enema...
1) Free Owners Manual download:
2) Don't store your FJ with E10 fuel
3) Replace your old stock rubber brake lines.
4) Important items for the '84-87 FJ's:
Safety wire:
Fuel line:

Here is an update on this topic. In November 2021 i did a test to see if i can use the Spraymax 2K primer inside the gas tank since the liner is cracking up.
It looks promising and i might use the primer.I first sprayed a couple of canisters with the primer and filled them with fule that has etanol mixed into it.
Then placed them outside .Now 20 months later i had a look to se how it holds up. The fuel filter i stuffed inside the fuelhose is working fine no problems with fuelstarvation ,but i think it is because the fuelfilter sitting inside the gastank is doing its job.

Just a little update.The bike started to cut out when riding it was just for a second from time to time i thaught it was something electrical ,but
then started thinking about the brass  fuelfilter i had stuffed iniside the fuelhose. Stopped an pulled it out it looked a little dirty this time so i removed it and after that the bike runs smooth again.So the filter lasted 2 years before it started starving the fuel .Will replace it next season
