Question about 1988 Ford F 150
Both tanks leak gas badly.I want to no if its a easy fix if i did replace the rear tank myself.
Here's a better way. I replaced the gas pumps in both tanks by taking the tanks out from underneath, pain in the ***. Friend of mine comes by (after I'm finished of course), and says "why didn't you just take off the bed"? Six bolts, the tank filler hoses, and the side support bars, and presto! both tanks and the pumps are right there. Good luck.

Its not too bad a job , try to drain out the remaining fuel somehow to eliminate extra weight and chance of spilling fuel, remove filler tube connections that connect to the body , remove the straps that support the tank(s), lower tank(s) withhelp whenever possible, remove connecting wires to the float/fuel pump assembly, then replace with new tank in reverse matter, if have spare tire under tank just remove out of the way, also disconnect the battery to avoid any type of sparks when working around fuel fumes, actually not to hard of a job , just usually dirty and time consuming for the first time , also if you cant get the support straps to unbolt you can always cut them off and replace with new ones.
