1996 American Eagle - Air Tank Replacement

Was under the rig this weekend searching out air leaks and found a pin hole in my System 1 Air Tank (Wet and Dry). Working with Spartan to get a replacement tank cost. Obviously, rig is sitting dead in the driveway and not too thrilled about having mechanic coming out to replace the tank. Only 8 or 9 hose fittings and two auto water extractors on the bottom to replace. Anybody replace theirs, at the shop or by themselves? Looking for cost and/or how much a PIA it is. Have worked on the air system before, so not afraid to pull the tank, but more worried about getting to fittings that were originally accessed from above (before the house was built).

Yikes. Sorry but I have not pulled one before. Looking at the pic, it “might” have enough slack in lines to lower enough to get to connections and undo. If it were me, I’d be replacing those compression fittings with push to connect to ease install. Please keep us posted on your progress/solution. This is good info for the next person.
