Hey thx for the helpful info previously. I just wanna say that there is no rust in the gas tank.....just black flaky sh*t on the middle hump and floating in the gas. I have my bike in self-storage and I'm gonna dissemble the tank and carbs and give them a good cleaning. Anyone where to get the right solvents for this in NYC? I'll probably try to fit in the points dwell and timing to be safe....:)
Hey Geeto she's running I'll pop my head in up in at that meetup and see what kinda madness is goin on!

P.S. Would you suggest running some kinda fuel additive through the system once I get everything cleaned and propa'?

you really need to figure out what sort of black flaky crap it is. If it is paint (which would be my guess since your bike is black) you are going to need to flush the thing out completely and probably disassemble and clean your petcock. I would do that anyway since the problems you seem to be having look like they are fuel delivery related.
