no need to take the tank off. all i do is unbolt it from the top of bell housing and prop it up. only reason is to get push rods out. many times i just tape the push rods up to clear the block and do it that way. do what your comfortable with.

A couple pointers; if there's no issue with the manifold gaskets it may be easier to leave the manifolds on. Also sometimes when you pull the pushrods out it will pull the lifters out and then you have to take side cover off so it can be prevented by wiggling them until you feel them separate.
