Another cracked fuel filler pipe

Well, took the bed off a couple of weeks ago to check the fuel pump. Put it all together and now it leaks fuel when I hit the gas pumps. Pulled the bed again and the the filler pipe is cracked right where it meets the fuel tank. Ordered a new filler pipe off of Ebay. For those that have replaced this, is it strictly an unbolt the old unit and bolt on the new or do you need to use a sealant of some kind? Need to get this taken care of in a timely manner as it will not pass smog unless the tank can maintain pressure.

If you've got the bed off, you've done the hard part. Rest is just clamps I believe.

Replacement parts I have seen offered on Ebay are for '90 thru '97. Think it's reasonable to say that these are the years affected.
