Default Removing Gas Tank Question

I am trying to remove my gas tank on my 29 CC Pickup and can't get a wrench on the inside of the two bolts on each side of the tank at the door post. Any idea's on what type of wrench to use?

A fire wrench will work. Then you won’t need to worry about which steel wrench to use until you put it back on.

Use penetrating oil on the whole series of bolts and fasteners and wait. Then use a 'dog bone' wrench. You may have to reverse the position and may even have to heat the wrench and bend it straighter a little if necessary.


As another member stated, flame and gas tanks do not mix well.

Thanks Guys, I managed to get the tank removed. I heated and then bent a old wrench to get it on the nuts inside the door post.
