The passenger side end of the tank had come free, but the driver's side is still connected at the filler hose, and the tank has a lip/seam that looks like it will hit on the door entrance area inside..
Ive worked on plenty ol chevys and older vehicles, but never removed an in-cab gas tank before..
Question: How to disconnect the tank front he filler hose? Inside or outside? I didnt see any bolts or screws inside, and the outside has a black molding around it to protect against moisture, etc. Im guessing..
Can anyone help me with this procedure???
Also, on an unrelated note from the gas tank issue--I noticed a small leak/seepage (of oil Im pretty sure) coming from where the distributor is mounted when I was adjusting the timing.. It is a straight 6, 250 c.i. motor. Looked like it was barely coming out, just bubbling a little bit.. IS there a gasket there that has gone bad and needs replaced, or could it be a crack? I didnt remove the distributor bc I am mmore concerned about the gas leak, but if anyone can tell me if there is a gasket there, id appreciate it!
Thanks for your time.
