    Hey everyone, I have to replace my fuel tank due to a hole in it. Obviously, i have to remove the engine first and was wondering where a good source for the repair manual would be. Any ideas would be helpful. Thank you!

    Buy a service manual online or at dealer is your best bet. Engines are not to hard to get out. To do a fuel tank you can pull the entire assy. Out at once. Pumps and motor as a unit. Not much to it really. Now once thats out of the way you still got to get the tank out. And new one in. They fit it there tight. You need a big pry bar. 50 pounds of bacon grease a six pack and some patience. Not a hard job at all but getting the tank back in working it under and around all the weldements does just take some time.

    You will need to get used to some pain first. For starters...have your wife stomp on your knuckles with cleats. You should be ready after that.

    Lots of heartbreak, broken dreams and disappointment behind that rear door.
