Datsunkid, sounds like you may have sucked some stuff out of the bottom of the tank. Anytime I hear of someone running an old tank like that empty, I usually recommend a new fuel filter and a quick inspection. As old as these cars are, you have to be careful not to run the tank empty, because any sediment that's settled in the bottom of the tank is sucked into the fuel pickup. Usually the filter does a pretty good job of catching it all, but sometimes a little makes it by.

The filter does an amazing job but water can flow through. If it's just water it will slowly get sucked through or evaporate from the engine warmth. Definitely change the filter, and cut it open and inspect. I had problems once and when I shook the old filter it rattled. The element inside had come apart and wasn't filtering at all. $5 for good running is cheap.
