I have taken apart a few of the pumps and just sprayed the pickup filter and other parts out with contact cleaner and it works really well to get it cleaned up. Howeever if the pump is locked up, you're better off just picking up a clean used one. I have tried several different ways to soak the pump with no luck. As far as cleaning the tank out, I have had good luck with using a pressure washer with a hot water switch at the shop I work at, dries out pretty quick too with the hot water, just be sure to rinse it out with some fresh fuel to get the rest of the moisture out. This only really works if the rust hasn't gotten a chance to dry up, if it has then the best bet is to clean it up the best you can and Kreem the tank. Fuel lines are cheap to replace, but you could just spray it out with some contact cleaner. Don't be suprised though if you end up having some problems with your injectors depending on how long the bike has been sitting. As far as the gas cap, you can try to remove the fuel pump and try to reach the bottom of the cap from the inside of the tank and squeeze the locks on the tank while turning the key. What bike is it?
