Need help reviving a 67 wagon

I’m reviving a 67 wagon!

 

Restoring an old Volvo wagon

I just bought a 67 wagon (project) for my daughter. The car was in good running condition when it was parked in the garage…….. 10 years ago! I checked all the fluids and they are all full. The old fuel in the system concerns me.

Any suggestions regarding the old fuel (tank, pump, lines, and carbs)?

I was planning to: 1. Drain the tank 2. Remove and clean the tank (suggestions?) and reinstall 3. Remove carbs and soak them in fresh gas overnight 4. Crank the motor and pump fresh fuel (mechanical) through the system 5. Reinstall the carbs 6. Fire her up (with fingers crossed)

Any suggestions?
