Hot water tank

Today was a good day, I reassembled a diesel engine that’s had a haunting intermittent misfire at high rpm only, and I think it’s fixed (weak valve springs). But more importantly I got a free leaking hot water tank. Well I hadn’t planned to post it but I was pictured stripping the insulation from the tank so why not. So here it is, if you’ve ever wondered what it looks like inside, it’s not too exciting. This one only had a few deep rust spots right at the top of the tank, and the anode was completely gone which is why the tank rusted. The bottom half of the tank was perfect. I’m going to make a hydronic oil burner from it. I’ve posted a picture of the house’s exterior with the Christmas lights on, I still have to take a daytime picture.
