Filler neck - Fuel hose size
Here I am asking for your help on this matter.
Yesterday while pumping gas I found out my truck is leaking fuel by the tank. I went under the truck and found out the hose elbow almost by the tank has a couple of cracks which are causing the fuel leak. I need to replace that hose and fix the leak ASAP.
After looking around the hoses I find that my truck has a filler neck with a vent tube attached to it (both made of steel), so 2 hoses go to the fuel tank. The vent hose and the fuel hose. I asked Ford about the entire filler neck assembly, and it is around $250. AutoZone has it for $170. Since I'm in Mexico, ebay or other sites/shops are not available. Sucks, I know. So I plan on getting a hose and replacing it with a fuel-specific hose. I know for sure a shop around my house sells fuel hoses, as well as hydraulic. (A couple of months ago I was driving the Civic to get some booze for the weekend, when I hit the brakes and the brake line exploded. I took the broken hose there, and they manufactured a special hose just like the one that exploded with great results).
Sorry for the wall.
1-Anybody knows the size of the hose going from the filler neck to the tank? I believe it is 2'' on one end, and 2.5'' on the other. Could someone confirm this? If I can't find a hose with such measurements, should I get a 2.5'' on both ends and just use worm clamps to fix it to the filler neck?
2-Are the bed bolts a T55 torx bit? Should I get any other torx size besides that T55?
3-Any advice/recommendations/suggestions on the subject?
