    I actually tried to shorten all the sentences one at a time but I guess I was a few letters short on some---anyway I looked the list over and you can figure them out easily enough except maybe for the one that says you should support the fuel tank with a "lifter"--which I presume is some sort of jack---obviously you don't want to be holding it up with one hand and disconnecting stuff with the other. Good luck with it. Also you might study up on how to undo the fuel line connectors if they are special or tricky in some way.

    that also gets all screwed up trying to cram everything
