Hi Gents, I am having an epic trying to get my oil tank out. Can anyone tell me what size the bolt is that is on the base of the tank, and any tips on trying to get it out. Scuffed knuckles and many harsh word and can't budge it. Mk2a

Last time I got it with a couple extensions and a ratchet from below. I think that's the real reason CNW does away with the bolt and just uses a rubber pad underneath.

The extentions worked for me too, but getting it back in and started before you can apply the extentions is entertaining.
