Need a gas tank for a 1997 Ford ranger

Tv2079 Valenti says:

Why can’t there be a video with a 2000 model

Damon .Valverde says:

Helpful video but it might pay to state the obvious. Get most of the gas out before you start so the full tank of gas doesn't fall on you!

Don Quixote says:

On the 1993 Ford Ranger PU (125" wheelbase), the fuel tank would not simply 'drop straight down'. It would not go back far enough until we removed the bolt out of the rear shackle for the leaf springs, removed the driver side shock at the top mount and unbolted stuff on top of the rear axle. What a crappy design… way to go Ford. Can't even buy a fuel tank for a Ranger. What a world.

John Jude says:

Thumbs up before I saw this, You always that good thanks

The Fallout Cinema says:

Did you happen to notice (or would you happen to know) if there's a check ball in the filler neck for those trucks? Trying to get the fuel out of the tank of a 98 Ranger that's been sitting around for a couple years to replace it with some known good fuel, trying to figure out the easiest way to do it… if there is a check ball valve, think I could probably just drop the tank enough to remove the filler neck and siphon from there?

Ship Of Fools says:

1995 super cab. Tank will not come out. There is a bulge in the tank that fits in the frame. Cant lower the tank because I cant clear the frame. Cant move the tank towards the driveshaft enough.

Mike Vonn says:

If you are trying to do this with just a jack, you really need to jack it up by the frame to get the driveshaft down far enough to be able to get the tank straps off, as seen in

John Loika says:

I want to get a screw jack. What is the model of the one in the video?

Jose Salazar says:

1992 ranger is little different but i want i trying tank you tank you have I god day

Joel Johnson says:

What's the connector on the back of the tank ? And what's its purpose

Reed Hedges says:

You should be able to unscrew the filler from the outside rather than taking the hose off, I think?

Jay Geo says:

is this the best way to replace the fuel pump? or bed removal is easier?
