Make sure to use 2 wrenches, clutch wrenches if you have them...

Thx for the tips. I think I’m gonna just put it back as is. It works, with no leaks. Right now anyway, that’s good enough…

Rained all afternoon here, so no painting today. Maybe tomorrow.

Prepped and painted parts finally. Top half of the tank is ready. Putting a couple of coats on the bottom tomorrow. I need to reattach the rubber anti-vibration pads to the top of the tank. Does anyone have suggestions for a good adhesive for these things??

3M makes a very good and versatile spray adhesive. If not, good old contact glue.

Or stop by your local auto parts store as Jocelyn stated 3M makes great products as well as Permatex

Contact cement or weatherstrip adhesive. Something flexible.

For the most part, whatever was on there previously must have gone away. Only a couple of them were sticky, the others were literally laying on top of the tank. I can see why the glue should be flexible.

She’s alive! My son helped with the fuel-tank-push-ups. Strapped it up, plugged it in, and added gas. When I primed the pump, I could hear the fuel running pretty well. I don’t think I could even hear it before when it was running previously.

I had a head slap moment when I was getting ready to put it back in. When I started, I could have removed the tank shield AFTER I removed the tank. Would have been much easier that way. I did put it on prior to reinstalling the tank however…


Also, I confess I put off the fuel * pump * till later, but I was running short on time. Plus, one project at a time.

Thanks to all that contributed! 😃

I meant fuel ** FILTER** !!

I put off the changing the fuel filter for another time.
