Can I get some simplified instructions and/or advice on dropping the fuel tank so I can install a new fuel pump? After I drop the tank, would it be a good idea to have the inside of the tank treated as a preventative measure? I heard radiator shops can do this. I don't want my fuel system to become clogged due to crud in the tank. The car sat for several years before being brought back to life and there was crud in the tank according to the previous owner.

The tank has a plastic baffle inside. Unless it has been allowed to rust internally, it should not need to be treated and I'm not sure it really could be.
