how to drop gas tank

i have 2 f150's, but never worked on explorer. co-workers nephew dropped off his 95 explorer yesterday for me to replace the fuel pump & filter. i've dropped the tank on my 87 f150 & a few other cars, but this one looks a little more involved, less room to work with. i don't have access to a service manual. anyone want to help a FTE man out with destructions or a link to them?
TIA,
Rick

mrshorty is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
When I dropped my tank, I used the instructions in Chilton's and did fine. Autozone has a free version of Chilton's on their site if you are willing to register with them.

tnx mr shorty,
i looked just little more on this site & found a thread about dropping the tank far enuff w/o removing the fill lines. that's what i did & worked good. also replaced the filter, already had the line removal tool.
now that it will start, i noticed it has the CEL lit up. how do i put this 95 into diag mode to check the CEL code?

found the test plug right after posting the question & it is identical to my 87 f150, so was not a problem. has code 113 & already have a space ACT sensor to install. only, it's not my explorer & the kid picked up up last night, he knows what's wrong with it & that i could fix it for him if he wants.
thanks for the replies
