Removing The Fuel Tank On A Defender 90

The job we are working on today required the removal and on a fuel tank on a Defender 90. This brought up some unique challenges. One option was to remove the trailer hitch to gain access to the fuel tank. The trailer hitch was too rusty to remove and this would have also created days of extra work. Fortunately the skilled hands of our techs were able to pry the tank is as well at place it back after the jobs completion. This job required specially fabricated fuel lines/ unavailable flex fuel lines for the Defender 90. These specialized fuel lines are however available at Dare Britannia.


One of the simpler parts of the job was over-crimping the steel fuel lines with an olive. An easy repair with an easy tool.



Just for comparison heres photos of the old nuts as well as the new nuts and olives.
