Is there enough room to remove the tank with the transfers muffler still in place?
Yes just removed mine this winter without removing anything else and without scratching anything on my 73.
I too have removed mine without touching anything else.
Raise the rear and put jack stands under the ends of the rear axle housing. (Chock the front wheels.)
Support the tank with a floor jack. (Hopefully the tank is empty or close to empty.)
The two straps are unbolted at the rear and unhooked from hangers in the front.
Disconnect, or cut, the rubber fuel lines. (You probably want to replace the rubber lines anyway.)
Lower the tank enough to disconnect the ground and sending unit wires.
(You can disconnect the black ground wire from the frame instead of the sending unit.)
Slide it forward a bit so the filler neck clears the tail panel and pull it out.
Anyone have the issue of the fill tube being too high to get the gas cap on??? Bend it? Feel like it may break
I’ve heard other members have had that problem.
Bending it does work.
The tank will flex a bit around the neck before the solder breaks loose.
Thanks bending it worked too bad the stock gas cap doesn’t fit, anyone have a recommendation?
