So, the gas tank is clean, no water or dirt got in it. I have a new fuel filter sitting on the bench so im gonna swap that tomorrow anyway.
I have a replacement filler neck for a F-series. Everyone lists a different neck for a bronco vs a truck, but i sure dont see the difference, unless its in the plastic tube inside. Fortunately, i run a gas tank from an F-series anyway. Also: i forgot to get a new gas cap.
The rubber filler hose didnt show up so i cant complete this today. Amazon sells Motorcraft gas caps with the little retaining clip on them, and theyre cheap so ive got one on order. Hopefully have this fixed by the end of the week!
