Guys,

I was searching around, and I thought I had to remove the diff, the driveshaft, and exhaust to get the fuel tank out. Then I read in a thread where someone said about getting prepaired to drop the exhaust. So I checked on the PTS, and it just says to remove the exhuast, then the tank. Is this correct or is this just fords magical BS of just remove "this" and you SHOULD have enough room to get "that" out? I have to take my tank out, and let it out, seeing how I'm putting a fuel cell in.

Just checkin,

Thanks for the info,

Brandon

thought I'd throw this question in an existing thread rather than a new one:

What has to be done to replace the shield around the tank? Do you have to replace the whole tank? I noticed the Shield raps around the tank and the two halves are riveted together (or spot welded? I didn't look that hard...hope it's riveted, or Ford is just stupid.)

Well since the tank is plastic and the shield is metal I can assure you it isn't spot welded to the tank :)

The two halves of the sheet metal sheilding around the fuel tank are indeed spot welded to each other. If you're replacing it, you could drill out the spot welds on the old halves and rivet the new halves together.
