Help! I had to take the tank of my newly acquired CD175 today and found out that the cross over tube if plugged solid. The previous owner had the tank lined just before I bought it so I suspect liner material in them. Any ideas on how to unplug them? They bend at a pretty sharp 90.

Get a set of crappy pipe brushes from Harbor Freight, cut the long metal handle off, grab it in a drill and punch it through :D

Finally got the tubes clear. After wearing a pinhole in one of the tubes with the cable trick, I got the coat hanger out and banged the obstruction free. It was not liner material but two steel beads. I guess they used steel shot to help in rust removal from tank and they got stuck in there.
