My tank / fuel pump is filled with rust

ok well my bike was acting up on me for awhile now and it got to the point where it wouldnt start at all. so long story short i pulled my tank, drained it and pulled the fuel pump. tank if filled with rust and fuel pump is rusted as well. what im trying to figure out is if there's a proper way to clean and then put something protective on the inside of the tank.

I do not have the rust problem but my bike acted up as well. I tried cleaning the strainer but still running like ****. I dont want to pay 450 for new pump from dealer so what pump does everyone recommend?
