    Hey all. Just wondering if it difficult to remove the fuel tank in a vs stato?. Fuel pump has shit itself and I wanna replace it and clean the tank out at the same time. Any tips?

    How do I remove the throat? Are there other hoses to disconnect?

    In the inner guard there is a metal cover which is screwed on... Once that that is removed you should see how to remove it.....
