SW20 Rev 2 Fuel Tank Stuck/Jammed

Post by Arca »

Hi all,

I've been trying to remove the fuel tank from my rev 2 tubby for a week or so now, but seems like it's stuck. I've followed the steps in several guides and made sure all of the bolts/fasteners and hoses are disconnected, but the tank is just refusing to drop. Not sure if it's rust welded to the frame maybe, or if there's something I've missed. I've read that it should just drop easily without resistance but even if I try and suplex the tank it doesn't budge. Does anyone have any tips for removing/dropping a stubborn/stuck fuel tank? I can try to get some pictures if it helps.
