Installing Fuel Tank

Hey guys

While repairing one of my rear leaf spring hangers that rusted in half on my 95 f250 I accidently put my drill bit through the rear fuel tank when I was drilling out the rivets. I was wondering if anyone had a write up or pictures of how to remove and install a rear gas tank on the obs trucks. Or if anyone can kind of just walk me through it.

Any advice is appreciated. Thanks Guys!

They are pretty easy, get as much fuel out as ya can to make it even easier. Get a jack to support it, loosen the straps that hold it up, lower it a bit disconnect everything and thats about it, then you can lower it the rest of the way.

For a small hole like that there are products that will fix it at your local parts store.
