I think the fuel line in my tank may have an issue. A forced auto yesterday caused some minor damage. The header tank was empty but the main was 1/3 full. I was wondering what is the easiest way to remove the fuel tank?

I think it will push right out the side.. Mine does anyway. And i dont think you have to take it all the way out to fix just pull the line out..

Thanks for the fast reply. I wasnt sure if you needed to split the bottom of the frames or not.

You can also squeeze the tank on the top, and while squeezing then just pull or push it out. By squeezing the top of the tank you can get the tank to come out without getting stuck with the top hump.

Spray some windex on the tank and that will make it nice and slippery. Will also help keep the rubber liner from slipping out. I also use this for installing the tank.

Thanks guys,
I got it out OK. Cant believe I messed up on the fuel tubing. I know better. When I assemebled this 600 I found better tubing than the stock, but apparently its still not as good as med aerotrend.

Lost the engine as I was going up for a piro stall turn. Fliped it around and dove towards the ground to get up head speed. Autoed it pretty good, (could have been better )

Bent boom and torque tube and one link /sw(sf) mix arm broke.

I have all the parts but the torque tube.

The tank slide out pretty easy, and I was carefull installing it back so I did get it back in also
