Fuel tank removal

I have a 94 Powerstroke F250 and want to remove the fuel tank to clean it and install a hot fox. I'm coming up short on finding information about the fuel tank diamater and how you remove the tank(s)

Please relay a website with complete information such as this

Thanks!

front one (7.3 diesel i assume)

the best way is to have buddy help you.

soak everything with penetrating oil. Then remove four bolts on the skid plate. remove skid plate. Then the two straps holding the tank and let down slowly because of the wiring hose from sending unit and filler hose.Remove filler neck off tank. Once lowered there is a small ring (3-4") that hold the sending unit in. Take a flat screwdriver and place on one of the little ears and hit the screwdriver with a hammer rotating the ring and voila.
REAR
Remove spare tire, Hidden hitch(if u got one) and skid plate. Then the rest is the same as above.

It took me about an hour apiece to remove and replace with new tanks by myself and some grunt work.
Hope this helps

What is this hidden hitch you speak of? I am in the process of replacing my rear tank on a 1997 f350. I had to cut the bolts off of the skid plate with a grinder, after letting them soak for a day.

Any pointers on dropping the tank itself? I have the skid plates off tackling the rest tomorrow, if I can find a tank.

what i had done is once i got the skid plates off, i unplugged the sending unit, its easy..i losen the filler hose enough so i could move the tank a bit..and i took a long screw driver and stuck it where the fuel lines go in between the crossmember and the box and took off the clips on the two fuel lines, and you need one of them tools to take off the fuel lines cause the tool pushes tabs on the end of the fuel lines so you can take off the lines...sometimes its a pain in the but to take out the tank,
