Fuel Filler Ground Strap Install
Are there standard procedures for installing the ground strap on a new fuel filler neck? Just removed the old rusted fuel filler and the ground strap had been attached much like a rivet would be formed. Looks like a hole had been punched and then the little metal points hammered down to hold the terminal onto the fuller neck. On the new filler neck there is not so much metal to work with. Using a small bolt and nut, I fear, would not leave enough room for the neck to seat where it needs to screw into the body. Any suggestions? This is for my new '99 ranger flareside, extended cab, 4WD.
