I was having similar problems with the tank on the Victor (MGB-based Special).
I dropped the tank and removed the fuel-level sensor and could see debris in
the tank. Some $%#@ had put dry leaves in the fuel-filler. It took about a
half-hour to remove all of the stuff out of the tank. I used an extension
grabber and a syringe to remove it. After that all was well.
