Stock Fuel Tank Removal

The first thing we did was support the tank with a stand. We then removed the filler hose clamp at the body and both lower fuel tank straps. Our '92 F-150 uses upper and lower rear-fuel-tank straps, but it's only required to remove the lower straps. Straps are cheap, so plan on replacing the lower rear straps, as these tend to rust. The upper straps tend to be reusable, but they should be inspected for signs of rust or fatigue. The front fuel tank uses just a lower pair of straps to locate the tank.
