I would be very careful pulling a vacuum on an aircraft fuel tank with a shop vac. Ask Reggie Roorda. It doesn't end well.

I talked to Lycoming the other day about an engine I was looking at. The tech said it was over 36 years old and would be worthless as a factory core. Of course there's value for field overhaul.
