fuel tank fill tube remove and replace 1994 ford ranger on 1994 Ford Ranger

replacing a fuel pump and fill tube is cracked. I have truck bed removed and thought I should change it. It is not sliding off tank port easily and I dont want to break anything.

take a small hook like screw driver and put between hose and tank and break the seal then twist it off.when you install use a small amount of grease to reinstall that will help
