Get it out as far as you can and cut it. Buy a new bolt and put the nut side closest to the tank and call it a dayI am in the process of putting a 4inch RC lift with boom shackles and I cant get the top shackle bolt out on the drivers. It won't clear the gas tank. Any tricks to get it out without dropping the tank. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Hey do you have an extra t case chain?What he said^ That is the easiest way. Either that or get it out by the tank and flex the bushing back to where the bolt kinda wedges itself between the skid and the tank and it should pop out, mine did. On my new one I put the nut on the inside and don't have the problem anymore.
I need a :facepalm: right here.Kelowna said:Using a cutting torch, just cut a small hole in the gas tank. Just run the gas down to an 1/8 tank only left first so too much doesn't leak out. The hole will let the bolt slide out. But no need to actually worry about that now, as the explosion made the bolt an insignificant issue.
I just bought a seawall. Im guessing this is gonna take a while. No the shield wasn't on when i tried my cutoff wheel. Im not stupid enough to cut a hole in the tank then use a torch.
