advice on replacing fuel tank.

Need some help, I have a 1986 90, the fuel tank needs to be replaced. I have new tank. I'm not the best when it comes to fixing cars, but this looks like a job even I could handle. Any advice? The first question is does the old tank come out from below or do I remove the seat box? Oh boy this is going to be fun.

I believe you have to remove the seat box. Search the threads, I remember seeing lots of stuff on this. Good Luck.

Assuming this is the same tank found on ROW trucks, the steps are simple:

1. Remove the right side floor pan
2. Remove the two bolts at the rear of the tank holding it onto the outrigger.
3. Remove the one bolt at the front of the tank holding it onto the frame bracket.
4. Remove the three bolts holding the frame bracket to the frame.
5. Remove the fuel pickup and return line from the fuel tank and tie off to the side.
6. Remove the fuel tank from the bottom of the truck.
7. Clean the underside of the seatbox while you are under there. It gets filthy over time.
8. Replace in reverse order.

No need to remove the seatbox
