To replace the fuel tank, proceed as follows:
Fuel spills are potential fire and environmental hazards. Clean up any spills in
accordance with local regulations. When replacing the fuel tank and
disconnecting the fuel supply and return hoses, avoid diesel fuel spills.
Always disconnect supply hose at the fuel filter and return hose at the engine
block, first. Hold up disconnected end of hose and let fuel drain back into the
tank before disconnecting tank end of hoses.
2. Remove the fuel supply and return hoses as described in WP 0028 00.
The fuel tank can be drained after it has been removed. However, depending on how
much fuel it contains, it may be more conveniently drained in place. This is also the
case if it has to be drained to remove contaminated fuel.
3. As applicable, remove the filler cap (retain) (figure 1, item 1) and drain the fuel tank by removing the
drain plug (figure 1, item 2). Drain fuel into an approved container.
