    Thank you for your posting on pulling/repairing the fuel tank. Every AM the garage smelt like fuel, finally narrowing it down to the 348! Your explanation and photos were superb in diagnosing the stink. Yes, another tank with baffle rivet problems.... I was about to pull/replace every emission hose, hoping to find the leak. Very minor leak/seepage, when pulling under pans, and just enough to stink overnight. Thank again... best, Sandy

    From Ernie's thread posted above....
    "As you can see in that last picture I'm holding the tank with one hand. It's pretty light as it's made out of aluminum. It weighs about 35 pounds dry, with both fuel pumps and the sender still inside. I remove the pumps and the sending unit, and then reweighed the tank. It came in at 23 pounds."
