In the past I've supported the tank at the side on a stool so when I tried swinging the tank 180° to balance on the rear frame I got very nervous
. That's a good thing 'cause I immediately dropped everything (after repositioning the tank forward) and whipped up my T-tool. Tank wasn't completely level as you can see the left side is closer to the seat bolt so I simply put a large bar through the conduit and 'adjusted' it. The lower support plate is about 7" long and I bent it to match the angles of the seat anchor shoulders and then drilled the holes concentric with the seat anchor raised 'tube'. Not to worry if you make one and you're a little off on the distance between holes; just file one oval to adjust
