Rear Diffy Lowering

I'm getting ready to lower the rear diffy to allow replacement of my
leaking fuel tank. Mr. Bentley advises "lock the differential" so I can
take out the bolts, I guess. Earlier he suggested I disconnect the battery
before disconnecting all the stuff at the top of the tank. Is there a
manual locking for the rear diffy? If not, do I really need to lock it to
take out the bolts? If I need to lock it, do I reattach the battery and
operate the switch in the console to lock it?
After I slide the halfshafts away from the diffy and "tie 'em up" somehow,
will I need some sort of gasket when I go to reassemble things? I can do
this pulling out of the halfshafts without disengaging their outer ends
from the hub/suspension?
Anybody got any idea how far down I have to let the diffy sag in order to
get the tank out? I want to figure out how tall a support I need to keep
the diffy from dropping too far.
