I cant remember if I had the engine out or not, even so its tight as I had to flex some part of the structure to get them out.  The bottom return on the tank is just too deep (although this may vary tank to tank). New aftermarket alloy ones from Esprit Engineering have no return and drop straight in and out. If you replace steel with alloy then paint them first as alloy corrodes as well as mild steel. If I had the choice again I would go stainless.
