It is pretty tight but it can be done. You remove the landing gear and the rear frame spacer then loosen some of the closest frame spacers ahead and above the tank, including the motor mount bolts. Then you have to "spread" the frame sides and slip the tank out to the bottom and back. I've done it this way many times. The key is to make sure you loosen enough items that you don't force and crack the frame sides.

Be careful with the ends of the mounting bosses that protrude from the sides of the tank. I have had two tanks spring leaks at the end of those.

Also, we have found it easier to replace the tank in the frames without the grommets in place, then install the grommets, one at a time, by separating the frames from the tank with a screw driver or similar object.

One last tip. If you have a source of vacuum, pull about 10 PSI before removing/installing the tank. This makes it much easier.
