Filler neck - Fuel hose size

Hello everybody,

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.

TL;DR

Questions:

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?

Thank you for your reply, man. But Amazon is not an option here in Mexico. If you have the old one around, could you get the hose diameter and length? If not, it's fine. Thanks!
