I have worked on several unstyled A's over the years; however they are not my specialty. Have any of You guys ever figured out a way to pull the fuel tanks without removing the steering shaft; or pulling the underaccessories for the room needed?

When I remove the hood on my 60. I have a pair of hooks on a short chain, I hook into the center ridge of the hood. Then with a floor crane I lift the hood and gas tank up off of the tractor.

Yes you still need to remove the steering shaft.

The alternative is to get a different tractor I suppose.

I didn't know on the 37 after removing the stacks and lines if there is any way of sliding it toward the steering pedestal an working it out from there. Its at the local museum with one side of the building open. I will have to cover any openings as theres always the potential for moisture. Am trying to save time and trouble; but it doesn't look like theres that option.

An old farmer once told me how to replace the gas tank on a John Deere. He told me to remove the radiator cap and drive a Ford under it.

The Deeres that I have been working on, early 1930s through 1951 all have to remove the steering shaft to remove the gas tank.
