Very good point about the fuel-hose. I found a similar example several years ago. The Ford Mustang I had developed an intermittent fuel-pump problem so I bought a new fuel-pump for it, only to find the pump is INSIDE the tank. No problem thought I, I'll just get under there and drop the tank and swap pumps. All went well except forgetting the tank was still more than 3/4 full when I dropped it... which meant about 14 gallons of fuel plus the tank itself suddenly landed on my head, chest and stomach. Ouch!
Glad to have you with us.
