    New Guy in Jersey

    Been waiting a few years for a neighbor to be ready to sell his wagon, last week he said he was ready. Its been in the garage since 1974. He is the original owner. I have the original title and invoice from the dealership. 55 210 4 door townsman 265 powerglide we are going to did it out of his garage tomorrow. Im excited to say the least plans are to keep it all original take all the usual steps for reviving the engine and drivetrain fog the cylenders drop the tank check the brakes hoses etc. before we attempt to start and drive. A slow and methodicle awakening. trying to up load some pics i dont think i m doing it properly ill keep trying ....look forward to sharing this resurrection project

    On wagons, to remove the tank, you'll need to move the rear end out of the way..........

    If you put the car on a lift, OR jack the car way up in the rear supported by stands under the frame, release the shocks off the lower mounts, then Maybe the rear will drop down far enough to get the tank out? Is it leaking? Are you sure you need to remove it? The sending unit and pickup can be removed using the above technique without complete removal of the tank...

    It's probably cheaper and better to get a new tank than to mess with cleaning yours. Sending unit is 0-30 ohms but imo I'd replace it anyhow with a new one. It's probably rusty too.
