I researched how to drop the tank and fix the in tank float/gauge. I used a tranny jack to support and lower the tank since I had no idea how much fuel was left in there. It was just a matter of removing the brackets while supported by the jack. A few things that I learned that nobody mentioned. There are vent lines at the front top and the back top of the tank that plucked itself off when I lowered the tank. They were really crusty. I replaced a section of the hoses with a longer length because there wasn't much room to work. I used hose clamps too. The hose at the back end had two different diameters. I dang forgot what diameter. I think it was 5/16 or 3/8 and the adapter/connector transitioned to 1/2" hose. I used hosed clamps on those as well. While removing the fuel sensor I noticed the float somehow got wedged at the top and there was no way slamming on the brakes would set that loose. I stuck a pvc pipe cutter in the tank and clipped off the fill and vent tube. I did notice it helps when topping off the tank. I did all this before my road trip. It's nice to know I can go over 600 miles before needing to tank up.
