I need to replace my fuel filler neck on my 95'. I am new to all of this, but have confidence that I am able to change it myself with the right guidence. I ordered my neck, but only received the part. No clamps, hoses, or any extra hardware. My current setup has been cobbled together by the previous owner and I am assuming has little or no original parts on it as it looks like a rubber washing machine hose and some Duck tape.
Before I get started on this, I am just wondering what other hardware I m going to need once I get under there, assuming I need to replace it all. The tank itself looks pretty solid as does most of the tubing after the neck.
Any tips or suggestions would be great as well.

if you need new tubing you have to get a special kind. goodyear makes it i know. you will also need 4 hose clamps, 2 smaller, 2 larger. im not sure the exact size.

The tubes connect to the tank with a couple short pieces of hose and some clamps. Open the fill door and you'll see screws that hold the top of the filler tube . Remove the tape and clean up things as best you can, so you can have a better view of what the PO did.

What is the hose that will be needed? Is it just the fuel grade stuff you can get from say Napa? Also, will I need to drop the tank in order to do this? It looks to me like I will not, but I better check because the closest place I can find new straps at is Quebec Canada and mine will not survive... Wisconsin winters have taken a beating to the entire underneath.

If your straps are that bad it might be a good idea to fix them before they break and you dont have tools around or the time, you can unbolt the bed and then lift up the drivers side until you have enough room to work without dropping the tank
If your truck is upside down, your mods did you no good.
