I got the truck for my 16th birthday but couldn't get my license until I was 19. Needless to say, the battery died. Upon replacing the battery, I found out that the fuel pump was dead. I removed the gas tank, found that it was rusted through on some places, got a new one with a new fuel pump, but hit a snag. The new tank is exactly the same size as the old one, but I can't get it back on the truck body. My mother's nagging me to work on the truck but I can't get anywhere with the tank. The front tank strap is attached to it and I can't get the part back on the truck body. I removed the old tank with the part attached, mom made me break the previous part. Does anyone have any suggestions?
