Gas tank questions

I have to replace the fuel tank in my 84 Wagon. What is the procedure for installing the filler neck? Any other helpful hints or tips?

Filler neck unbolts by the licence plate, and just pulls out. If you get a replacement tank it just slides in. Might want to spray a bit of penetrant around it to make sure it comes out easily.

Dieelectric grease or Silglyde to slide it in.
AMC/Jeep gauges are for amusement only. Any correlation between them and reality is purely coincidental!
