While dropping my fuel tank to swap the pump today, the front strap nut was so tight and wouldn't loosen anymore that it pulled the T-shaped bolt out of the flange. I cannot loosen the nut anymore . The t-shaped bolt is still thought the strap. I don't know if I should cut the t-shaped bolt off with a bolt cutters and look for a replacement T-shaped bolt and nut. Is that available?
I did get the tank out and have yet to tackle the actual fuel pump replacement, but I'm worried about this when I reinstall the tank.
Has anyone had this issue before or know what I can do to the front strap to reinstall my tank?
