HELP,

Need to see if anybody can help me.

The problem i am having is i can not

get the fuel pick up assembly out of my gas tank.

It's a built in the floor.It is a plastic tank.

They have a nut that screws into the top of the tank and the pick up 90 that the fuel line hooks to screws to it.I got the big nut loose and the 90 loose and it just spins.

Any ideas would help.
