I needed to pull the gas tank to replace the fuel pump and the speed nuts busted on the bolts to the bracket for the straps. How do I get the bolts out the piece keeps spinning up top I cant grip it with nothing.

Have you tried a pair of vice-grips? The proper size wrench or socket wont work? I cant see much from here.

You might try a die-grinder, grind off the nut, be careful with the sparks. You can get new bolts and nuts, whatever, from your local hardware store.
