Still no water

Guys,

I finally made it out to the boat today and replaced the impeller. There is still no water coming out with the exhaust. When I had the pump apart, I should have opened the raw water valve...

That sounds like my tank. I did get it to the lowest point. I pumped everything out.

Fuel tank

When I fired up the A4, I bypassed the old fuel tank and ran it off a small plastic fuel jug with fresh gas. My fear is that the original is heavily corroded. Should I scope the original tank or...
