tub does not sit all the way on to a frame

tub does not sit all the way down on to a frame. Only after I lower gas tank.
Possible, I put wires wrong, and it does not let it sit all the way.
Anybody has pictures how wiring should be arounbd gas tank? Or may be it is a different issue?
I went over ECR pictures, it is not clear. Also, where electric wires should come out of the frame, outside or inside towards the tank?

Can you show us pictures of what you are running into? The tank does push up tight against the tub, but all wiring and lines should be recessed into the grooves on top of the tank.

Not sure if any of these help, but here are pictures of when I dropped my fuel tank

I am confused where to run wires.

Does it exit frame towards tank?
I put mine on top of the tank, and that's probably why it does not let it sit.
Any pictures from underneath of the car?
I'll try to take my tonight.
Great job with the frame!!!!
I am happy it did not just died. Good job!!

The wires run forward towards the engine alongside the fuel lines. If you look at the picture below the orientation of the tank is as if it fell to the ground from it's mounting place. The wires hookup to the white connector to the right of the fuel lines. They should not interfere with the fit if they run next the the fuel lines (there is an indent there). I'd have to look to see exactly where the wires come out of the harness but it will be forward of the tank for sure. My truck is too dirty to tell right now so it may take a few days to check.

thanks, I think pull wires off the frame towards outside, and it lays on top of the tank.

I'll change it and let you know.

Glad I could help. Looking good! Let's have a race to see who can finish our project first. LOL, you'll probably win.

Did you still need to see how the wires run forward of the tank? I got my truck mostly clean underneath today so I could probably take a decent picture now if needed.
