Have any of you all had to replace the Gas tank filler hose? I found that the gas tank end of the hose is all cracked. First I was unable to find the part number at autozone/discount/orielly's. I found that you can buy a 2' hose and then cut it to fit. After I loosened the clamps I could not get the hose to budge. Should I cut it off? And after I get it off how does one get it back on?

Any help would be great.

Ok I finally got it off. I had to cut it. Here are the spec on the hose:
10 3/4 in long
1 7/8 in on filler side
2 in on tank side
6 7/8 in circumference
25-30 degree angle on tank side.

I have pics I just need to figure out to post them. I am going to take the hose to the local auto-parts dealers and see if I can get it. If you all know of way to post the pics with the preview in the preview let me know.

I need to make a Correction the length of 9 3/4.

Also I tried to to use a gates hose that Orielly's gave sold me and well it was not going to go over that gas tank. So I called the local ford dealer and ordered one for $23 (including tax.)

Hopefully this will be easier.

One last thing. So I got the hose and got it on after about an hour.

So here is what I learned:
Part number for 96 escort LX: FOCZ-9324-AA Hose ASY $21.09 + tax
Use a little oil on both ends to get it to slide on.
Gas tank end first and then filler neck. The tube bends enough to slide on the neck.
Then just snug up the clamps. I am going to check on it in a couple days to make sure it is snug.
