    I've used:

    Ray’s Radiator Clinic, Inc. 

    6550 Cobb Drive

    Sterling Heights, MI  48312

    586-759-5010

    They hot-blast-acid-clean the inside of the tank; if they can't get to all the rust inside they cut holes in the bottom of the tank to gain access then weld it back up; in the process they weld up any remaining pin holes; then they coat/seal the inside of the tank and media-blast the outside - $275

    Failing that - I've got a complete new Caswell tank sealing kit I'll sell you - $50

    I second Ray's Radiator Clinic, they were able to clean, coat, and seal a tank of mine that had been left full for 20+ years... was a nightmare cleaning that varnish out but they sure made my life easier. Reasonably priced too!
