    Use a pair of vice-grips w/wooden blocks in the jaws to clamp off the fuel line running from the tank to the pump.
    Saves draining the tank.

    Then mostly the usual stuff like:
    -Use tubing wrenches on the fittings so you won't round off the fitting.

    Simple just squeeze of tank line and unbolt bottom bolt and remove can. Make sure you have a small bucket under the fuel can. Then take out the gasket and put in the new filter and gasket . Tighten the bolt and your are done. Only need to make sure that the gasket is seated in the top of the filter housing when you put the can on.
