Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2017: 1925 Tudor gas tank removal

Messin' with an un-restored '25 Tudor and thinkin' about taking the gas tank out but, so far, it's a puzzle. Don't see any bolts under or over the tank. I'm guessing the driver seat needs to be taken out first but, same thing. What do I undo?

Thanks

It is the lower seat frame that holds the gas tank in place. The wood screws around the base of the seat frame need to be removed.

Thanks Rich. I can see two screws in the lower front and I think they have been there since 1925. How many screws are there? Some in the back too? After removing the screws I assume the seat come out by lifting straight up?

I think there are 3 on each side and 2 or 3 at the back. The carpet may make them hard to see. I can't get at mine right now.

Here is how mine is. The screws are in the flange at the bottom of the seat frame just under the carpet that goes around it.

Many thanks Rich for taking the time for the pictures. That helps a lot. Wow, you car really looks nice. Mine still has the 1925 original wood in the floor and original interior. Doesn't look very good right now, but I think I'll leave it alone for now. Thanks again.

Thanks John. I pieced mine together from parts. I would loved to have had one like yours to start with.
Enjoy it.
Rich
