Dropping a fuel tank
Last ran in 82. Rusty. Dropping fuel tank. Looks
like 2 bits for straps. Remove those, hold tank up
with floor jack. How do i disconnect from filler cap
tube and wheres the fuel sender unit located. Also,
trying to turn by hand w ratchet on crank pulley and
breaker bar. It aint moving. Hiw much effort is too
much? Pulled plugs and squirted in penetrating oil.
Unclamp the filler hose at the tank. The sending unit is on top of the tank. Fill all the cylinders with Marvel's Mystery Oil or automatic transmission fluid and let it sit for 2 weeks. Then try breaking the engine free by carefully trying to move the crankshaft both directions. Hope that helps! Jim
Ok. Will do. Thank you.
You're welcome. Glad to help. Keep us posted. Jim
