Re: [DML] Water pump and internal water pipe removal

2 for 2 so far, Andy. I got the water pump out successfully. Maybe 
you can help with the last thing trying to stand in the way of a 
Happy New Year. I'm trying to replace my original gas tank. I 
removed the support plate but gravity did not do the trick bringing 
it down. It is positively wedged in place. The foam is practically 
bonded to it. I used a screw driver to try and separate the tank 
from the foam where I could. I tried pounding on it from the access 
cover from the top with a rubber mallet, to no avail. Next I 
fashioned a wooden lever and wedged it from the top between the rear 
part of the tank (skinny part) and the fiberglass body just above 
and it and tried that lever action repeatedly to dislodge it. All it 
accomplished was to push the top of the tank in as I pulled. I know 
there are a hundred reasons not to do this besides the ones I can 
think of, but the only possible idea I have left is to cut at it 
with a Dremel from the bottom and hack it up and pull it out in 
pieces. Anybody had any similar problems? Thanks for any help!
