do you need a special tool to remove the 3 strange screws holding the tube to body?
This is on a 68 Barracuda
No, just a Phillips head that fits the screws
these are not phillips heads round with 4 cuts on outside edge
Post a pic.
Have you picked at them to see if the slots are full of corrosion?
tamper proofs so no one snakes the quick filler. cut a slot or drill out and replace. or find that bit. Eaton made them for Mopar for radios too
Yep, security screws. I would be tempted to use a good needle nose pliers and grab two of those slots and gently try and turn them out. Go easy so not to damage the head.
What I did to remove (from the backside), found the tool to install. Socket and new screws 68-70 Charger, 67-69 Barracuda, 67 GTX Flip Top Gas Cap AntiTheft Screws & Tool | eBay Socket only 68-70 Charger, 67-69 Barracuda, 67 GTX Flip Top Gas Cap Anti Theft Tool | eBay Alan
Yep, tape up the tank opening real good and Mototool a slot in those puppies
I ended up taking a small flat tip screw driver and was able to turn them till I could get vise grips on them , anyway got the old gas tank out and now getting ready to insyall new one and clean filler tube
I use needle nose vise grips to back them out a few turns from inside the trunk area. Then I can grab the head outside. Reverse procedure to tighten them back in again. Others are easier than fastback of course.
