Anything that I might need to be aware of in removing the fuel tank, other than connections and straps?

Should be fairly easy although before removing the nuts I would recommend dosing the two T bolts at the rear with penetrating oil a day or so prior to the attempt. Tank is kind of bulky and heavy so might be good to have something close able to support it when you let it down far enough to disconnect the sender wire. If your car is one with a Wade connector in the fuel sender wire where it joins the body loom in the trunk you can disconnect there and feed the short length down thru the grommeted hole near the L tail light assy and let the tank down the entire way..

A couple days ago, in the evening I raised the front of the car up and placed it on jack stands. Tonight, I crawled under and sprayed the master cylinder bolts and fittings with Blaster. Would like to remove the master to check for condition of the bore. Fingers crossed I hope I can rebuild it....
See the end of the breather is mashed and needs opened back up. John

I envy you making some headway. I'm on hold what with working out of town and the house project which butted its way to the head of the line.

If you're not having fun, maybe it's your own damned fault.

My headway is rather slow..... Wish I had more time to devote to it.
On the master cylinder front it looks like the bore is in nice shape, no pitting I can see. I will probably seek out a cap for it. The original seems sort of brittle, on part of the flange the gasket goes onto chipped off.

I understand entirely. I meant that you're getting to spend some time with yours. My time is going into getting this new piece-of-a-house renovated so it'll produce a few shekels of income. It's a money pit at the moment. And a labor pit.


I know, it's a first world problem, but still.
