On gas tank removal and install. It'* really quite easy.

Run the tank lower than you ever have
Jack the car on all four corners.
Lower exhaust via two bolts to the muffler and support w/plastic bucket (A great tool)
Unhook the fuel supply and vent hose to the filler
Disconnect the electrical connector to the tank.
Disconnect the fuel lines and vent to the engine (by rear right wheel), this is the only tricky part as sometimes they are rusty/cruddy. Let all fuel dry and make sure it'* cleaned up before you press on. Take a break, you've earned it.
Try to unbolt the straps. Spinning nuts? No problem, cut the straps near the front of the tank.
Pull tank out, by lowering passenger side first.
Remove old straps and put pins from front of strap on new straps.
Blow junk off tank and open, swap parts, reinstall.

In your case though..I would suggest a new tank. Being that 92 had the poor baffle design it might hinder you in the future to reuse the tank.

You'll need a new tank seal under the pump. The new one doesn't come with it.

I have the 255 lph.

hm, ok....

I'll have Matt price a tank out from the dealer for me.

I might concour this once I get the Power Steering pump replaced. I think I'll get a quote to have it done at the shop while they are doing the PS Pump.

fyi, I also just ordered a new set of angel eyes fog lamps to replace one of my cracked ones

Good to hear you are once again focusing on the Bonne instead of the temporarily dearly departed Exploder.

Well, I gotta have reliable vehicle. But it does feel good to spend some $ on the bonnie. I can't wait to have her back
