Does anyone have experience removing broken 4 mm screws from the fuel tank 'lock ring'?
Specifically, I have a 60 series, 77001-60241 fuel tank with two of the 4mm screw heads missing from the lock ring where the suction/supply tube gets installed. It gets tricky because the threaded holes in the ring don't carry through into the tank, so drilling the broken screws out for extraction gets nerve racking. The ring has a detent in the side, but it certainly does not appear to be threaded on, for easy removal. If the ring could be removed some how, my world would get a lot sunnier.
Despite the corrosion on this one part, the tank is in surprisingly great shape and worth restoring.
Thanks for any information

Maybe some pictures would help? Another approach--has the fuel tank recall been done on your vehicle? I think Toyota is still replacing original fuel tanks that were part of that recall.
