Glad you got the job done. It sounds like you had to notch the gray/black tank shroud. I have taken this larger tank shroud down on the 89 model which is something I don't want to do again. Had no trouble with the bolts breaking but I used an impact wrench which seems to do a better job on rusty bolts that brute strength. The brute in me always snaps the bolts much quicker.
Got my axles ordered but I won't be doing this job until July.
