Customer Question
How do you remove...

How do you remove a JD 3020 gas tank? I have the two bands around it removed but it still won’t budge. What am I missing?

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the complete model and serial number of your machine?

Model is 3020 and I don’t know the serial number. It’s in the later/newer series.

Hi, I’m Wayne.

I will be assisting you with this issue today.

That is all that is holding it in is the 2 straps

most times the rust between the tank and the straps hold it

use a putty knife to loosen it

I hope this helps you

No that’s not it. The bands are completely out. I have tried shoving on it from the side but it won’t budge.
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I don’t need to call. I’m just asking what else I have to loosen or remove.
Mechanic: Wayne, Journeyman replied 4 months ago

I have that. I assumed there’s something underneath not in this diagram. It’s very hard to see from underneath because of the front axle etc
Mechanic: Wayne, Journeyman replied 4 months ago

Hi

Thank you for that

some had a bolt in the back of the band that had to be removed

check if you have that

I have checked & there’s nothing further on the bands. Thanks anyway. Guess I’ll have to look from underneath further.
Mechanic: Wayne, Journeyman replied 4 months ago

OK

Let me know
