Delia, when I changed both tanks 8 yes ago,I had a A frame set up in the sallon moved motors to floor level,cut tank up threw out the door. New tanks had to be smaller to fit through rear salloon window. I can do most of my work so labor was low. Just had to do it again as weld started leaking,weld was contaminated and fuel weaken weld . This time
I had a crane/Pettibone lift come through the port window and the tank was removed thru the starboard window. Engine was lifted to floor level ,tank was removed ,easy access once engine out of way then engine back on stringers as tank was repaired. Then repeated to put tank back in. Don't wish it task to anyone, but it can be done,with carefully planning,knowledge of what needs to be done,and plenty of beer. Good luck!!!
