I am thinking I have a different/bigger tank than you have. My tank is at least five feet long and frame rail to frame rail on the sides, Probably 18" or better top to bottom. It is an 80 gallon tank. The reason I say that is I don't see any way I could just lower it a little and get my arm in there, not if the fittings are in the center. I have, I think four straps across the tank and three large and fairly long bolts holding the end up. That is what makes me think I can loosen those bolts and take the straps off and lower just the front pivoting on the bolts. I guess it depends on whether there is enough play in the holes in the frame and tank support to allow that much movement. I see what appears to be a pump behind the tank on the passenger side frame rail and I am wondering if this is an external pump and not one in the tank.

Sounds like we have the same setup. I have not gotten a good look at the pump yet, My air bags leak down over a couple of days so I do not feel comfortable under there without stands. I will be setting it up over the weekend if the weather allows. (which it appears it will not). I want to check all the air lines at the same time. The gas line that is leaking is blowing out the passenger front side of the top of the tank and running down the side compartment wall so the break is at that end of the tank. It looks like I will have to lower the whole tank because if it is rubber it is getting replaced.

Rick just wanted to jump on this thread also, I am on you newer one with the gas tank. When I lowered my tank I used a transmission jack.
Thanks.

Can I

Jump on too? What are you replacing the radiator in? I have found mine also @ Rock Auto but more than $200.00 more like 4- $500 and that's not to my door I also found it @ AutoZone just in between 3-400 bucks
Merry Christmas, Tim
