Fuel Filler & Vent Hose Replacement

After 20 yrs. I have to change these hoses on my 89 4.2 5spd. Started to detect the odor of gas coming from the driver's side wheel well. Checked the hoses and both are cracked. After removing the plastic piece covering them in the rear wheel well I noticed that it won't be too difficult except for the top fuel filler clamp. Any tips from you guys who have done it.

Under the passenger side rear corner you'll find the rollover valve. It's right angled rubber connector is prolly dry rotted. it is available from the dealer for about $30.00.

It is not too difficult of a task. Unless you just have to I would not remove the tank. A very long necked flat head screw driver was all I needed.
