Default Fuel neck replacement on 1990

Hi all
I have a 90, 131k on it. The fuel neck is totally rusted, all the way from the opening to the joint into the tank. I just noticed its dripping a bit of fuel onto the ground when I put gas into it. Rock auto has the replacement (the whole neck and I guess the release or exhaust line for the tank) for 40 bucks. Has anyone done this before? From what I've seen you can just pull the neck off and put the new one on. Is that the case? Or do I need to drain the tank and take other precautions?

Thanks for your help!

As long as the level is lower than the install then you are good

Yup, when I dropped the tank on my 97 Accord the fuel level was around a quarter tank (was replacing the fuel pump). Just so you know, it had a drain bolt in it, if you needed to fully drain the tank. Honda discontinued it for the 98 models, which sucked when I replaced the fuel tank on my 99.
On my 92 Geo Prizm (Corolla clone) I replaced the filler neck at about the same level (1/4 tank).

Thanks for the advice. Would you drive or don't drive while waiting for the part to arrive?

(And everything I see online seems to indicate you can replace the neck without dropping the tank. Does that line up with your alls experience?)

You've been driving it thus far so if you need to then it shouldn't be a problem. You are correct you do not need to drop the tank unless you want to clean it.

If you've been driving it, it shouldn't be a problem. I wouldn't fill it so full that it leaks though. Yes, you can change it without dropping the tank, as it gets installed after the tank anyway.
