Yes, I did change the front hoses and brake lines while the clam was off.

There is some play (maybe an inch or so) of forward / aft movement of the coolant pipes when the front hoses are disconnected. Though, I don't think you'll gain enough real estate to accomplish a work-around that prevents removing of the gas tank. In reality, the coolant pipes are actually a lot shorter than the diagram shows.
