With old filler tube hoses, it will be nearly impossible to re-install  it 
with the hoses on. They will not want to bend. With new hoses on the  main 
and the vent tube, it is easier. Conversely, it is easier to install the  
main hose, clamped to the filler neck, with a used hose, because it is formed 
in  the correct position. Changing the clamps to different styles may help. 
PS - The  easiest way to install the tank is to drop the front suspension 
down first. Not  as hard as it sounds, depending on rust issues on the six 
attaching bolts.  Just consider it.

Look for  advise on  how do reinstall the fuel tank on a late model 66  

Do you attach the filler tube to the tank first and  install as everything 
as an entire assembly? I've tried this but seems very  difficult to get the 
filled tube to lined up and can't seem to get the tank in  the proper 
location. And  I don't see how it would be possible to  attached the filler tube 
to the tank once the tank is installed. Thanks for  your help.
