Help! I have searched the forums, service manual, Internet and cant find anything.
I have a year=2000, Vulcan Nomad 1500FI. I removed tank and took pictures along the way to remember what I did. I removed the intank fuel pump to clean it and clean out the tank again took pics along the way.
I reveresed the process and it seemed everything was ok but its not. The rear end of the tank (faces toward seat) does not go down far enough to screw it into the frame, there is a large gap from the tank hole to the frame. The front of the tank is resting properly on the rubber studs on the left and right side of the tank and aligns properly with the hole to screw down the fron of the tank.
But the rear end of the tank doesnt go back down enough into the frame (hence the gaps and cant screw it in...). It seems like the fuel filter plate is hitting something inside the bike frame prohibiting it from going in properly.
I'm stumped. Again, I feel very confident i reinstalled the fuel pump properly in the gas tank and everything should just go back into place but clearly it is not.
Any guidanc appreciated. Will upload pics tomorrow for viewing.
