Fuel tank install
« on: March 31, 2017, 12:40:32 PM »
Hi
Trying to install my fuel tank in my 80 wagon and I can't get it up around the tire well. Any tips?  I guess it would help if I was 20 instead of 62. Loll

If you have a floor Jack, and scrap plywood 2'X2' and an old pillow , you might get the leverage needed without the  shoulder cramps from trying to do it all alone at our age.  (60 and fighting to keep the upper strength in my old frame) ;)
