get out your tools and start hacking away- I hope you don't have to drop the tank- if you do, get the tank cleaned while you're at it- I would have someone else do this because modern gas is highly carcinogenic- to get on your skin, to breathe-

not sure what this guy above me is talking about.. only thing he is helping is to mislead or stress the peeson in need at any note... WHEN OPENING THE FUEL DOOR YOU WILL SEE 3 SCREWS UNSCREW THEM... THIS WILL RELEASE THE CONNECTION OF THE FILLER NECK.. TAKE NOTE OF THE THIN MEDAL LINE THAT RUNS ALONG THE ACTUAL FUEL FILLER NECK.. THE RUBBER HOSE THAT CONNECTS TO IT.. AT THAT POINT DISCONNECT FROM THERE.. THE REST OF THE NECK WILL SLIDE OUT THE TANK ABOUT 10 INCHES MAYBE... INSTALLATION IS JUST THE REVERSE... YOU DO BOT HAVE TO DROP YOUR GAS TANK TO CHANGE THE FUEL FILLER NECK IN A LINCOLN TOWNCAR... HOPE THIS HELPED... & AT MR GET TOOLS AND START HACKING AWAY.. YOUR A DAM MORON... ACTUALLY A MOROFF... CAUSE APPARENTLY YOUR MORE OFF THAN ON....
