Hi, I thought this might be useful to someone else who has the problem of hooking up the gas filler neck after replacing the gas tank in a first gen with one of the poly (plastic) tanks you get as a replacement. With the metal tanks, the instructions say that you need to transfer the old filler neck from your existing tank onto the new tank. The reason you need to transfer the filler neck is that the place that they put the filler inlet on the new tank is in a spot where there're no room to hook anything up to it. Specifically, the neck inlet on the tank is placed right where the rear horizontal support is located. There is simply no way to get any kind of hose on there if you do not have a body lift. The first pic shows how cramped it is. I thought about cutting the neck down and trying to use a section of the old filler neck with a small rubber pipe to hook it up( as Burt 4x4 suggested) but realized if that it would still be very tight in there without any kind of body lift. So I decided to try and bend the inlet away from the supports enough to get the hose clamped onto it. By looking closer, it only needs to bend about 45 degrees to the rear of the truck and a little downward. I decided to try heating the inlet nozzle and bending it with a pipe to the direction I needed. To keep the inlet opening round, I placed a hose clamp on the end, but not very tight. I then used a heat gun from Sears set at ~650F to slowly heat the inlet and surrounding area for about 10 minutes until it seemed to bend easily without over stretching anything. Most of the bending happended on the surrounding area of the tank and not on the actual inlet portion. Once it would bend the amount I needed, I let it cool down while I held it in place. It had a tendancy to want to creep back to the original location, but once it cooled down enough, it would stay there. Once it was back in, it was now much easier to get the filler hose clamped on and the hose routed pretty easily without kinks or rubbing on the frame. Feel free to steal the idea for your own uses.
