gas tank filler neck

The other day my son and I decided to replace the exterior grommet on the filler neck of my 62 unibody. It was dry, cracked and hard as a rock. We of course didn;t think to use soapy water or something to help the grommet slide on but we got it on just fine with a little elbow grease. More his than mine. Ever since, I've noticed a strong smell of gas fumes in the cab. I'm thinking maybe we cracked the old rubber filler neck tube that attaches to the tank. I dont find any leaks anywhere from the tank but the filler neck hose is really dried out and hard as a rock. Has anyone experienced this? Is it just a matter of taking off the hose clamps on each end and replacing the ruber hose or am I missing something else? The sending unit appears to be attached to the tank just fine and I don't see any cracks along the fuel line.

Has anyone experienced this?
10's of 1,000 of people have!
Between the fuel tank and fuel filler tube is a neoprene rubber hose that clamps on. Hose hardens up/age cracks and/or clamps work loose, gas fumes emanate from hose.

Thanks! I knew that was kind of a dumb question. I'm sure thousands have had this happen on these 50 year old cars. From the drawing posted, it's part 9047. Dry and hard as a rock. Where can I get better drawings like this? Parts manual? The shop manual I bought is a little lacking.

From the drawing posted, it's basic part number 9047.

Where can I get better drawings like this? Parts manual? The shop manual I bought is a little lacking.
Basic part numbers shown in illustration section of parts catalog. Text section required to get complete part number.

1957/63 Ford Truck Parts Catalog available on a CD from hipoparts.com.

C1TB-9047-A (replaced 78-9047) .. Fuel Filler Hose / Reproduced

1961/77 F100/750 with in-cab fuel tank / 1937/48 Ford/Lincoln Zephyr & 1939/48 Mercury Passenger Cars.

Carpenter has it listed under 78-9047 for about 10 bucks.
