Default 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?

Go to Ebay and type in your truck year "2003 ford ranger fuel filler neck" You say your "hose" is cracked but it looks like on the 2003 they are all metal with the metal vent tube?...I bought one from a company called Art and Auto. Mine is a 94 and it is different from your year (all rubber including the vent hose.) There is one for your truck for 47.85 shipped to your door. Its not the same company but the part looks decent. I am super happy with mine comes with everything you need including new clamps. I hope this helps you out. ...You COULD do it without moving the bad at all but it will be tight. Get the torx 55 and loosen the 2 rear most bolts (near the tail gate) about 1/2 inch or so....take out the other 4 and you should be able to lift the bed up 10 to 12 inches and put a block between it and the frame to gain access. "Good luck with your repair!

Sorry I didn't read the whole post to see no available Ebay. Maybe have someone in the states order and send it to you? Do you have paypal? I will do it if we can figure what it will cost to get it to you and you pay me up front.

Sent from Uranus.
