nozzle at pump clicks off unless filled with trickle or gas can have replaced pump and sender ,fuel vent system, filler hose vent was checked and verified it is clear. Has small hose for filler 1.5 inch .tried to replace with 1997 filler with hose down pipe which has a 2.5 inch hose ,so won't fit. Is there a fix for this problem or will another gas tank from 1997 fix it.or is there a recall or TSB

after much brain storming I've come to the conclusion that the rate of fuel that the gas pumps pumps into tank is the problem .in 1998 this truck was the only year a gas tank will fit only 1998 after that Ford redesigned the truck and made the gas fill hose larger to 2 inch to accept the faster pump flow. This is why the nozzle cuts off ,its flow rate was increased after 1998.
