    Yes. After engine removal it can be removed fairly easily.

    thanks 30xs, looking forward at the tank from eng compartment it looks like it would be a tight fit if at all. are there any particular twists or rotations that need to be done that you know of?

    From best I can remember once you unhook filler hose, straps, vent, and electrical it was a straight slide into the engine bay. I think I may have rotated it so that the fuel fill side came out first??? I don't remember having any difficulty at all removing it from the hull. It was really very easy and straight forward.

    Yeah, comes out with little trouble. Make sure to remove the flapper when you have the filter out and get rid of that reserve line and make the main the "Main."

    Have fun.
