I am trying to remove the gas tank from my 76 Bonneville. The nut in the center of the gas tank has been removed and the metal strap on the bottom front but now the rear of the tank is stuck in place. Could there be another mounting bolt or could it be stuck to a piece of rubber underneath?

All suggestions are welcome,


Thank you

Very likely stuck on the U-shaped rubber mounts (2) as there's no other bolt.

What LAB said^^.

Mine is very tight on the U shaped rubbers - I now fit these with a smear of silicon grease as otherwise I can't get the tank to sit down sufficiently..
