How do I remove gas tank from Big 10?

Recommended Posts

I just picked up a big 10 that someone had begun to part out. I noticed that someone had put the gas tank in backward; the fill spout does not line up with the hole in the hood. How do I remove the tank? It seems wedged in pretty tight. Thanks for you help.

I've found that loosening the dash up at the front, engine end will help. You only need to do the tank side, but I guess you'd figured that out. They are a bear when there in right, wrong can't make it better.

Removing the one bolt that holds the dash panel (at the front left corner, up near the engine) released tension on the tank. I was then able to remove it. For some reason, this tank has the shut-off valve directly under the fill cap. So, if I am going to put it in correctly, with the fill port aligned with the hole in the hood, I'll have to drill a hole in the plate that is located under the tank. Someone else had hacked on the plate at the other end, up by the dash to install this tank with cap in the wrong place.
