Not sure how Ford did it, as there are 2 different front tank sizes. My assumption would be the tanks are the same, but the filler neck or hose may be different. Similarly, the location on the tank is probably the same or similar for where the filler hose meets it. I'd would just take a few dimensions though to confirm this and as long as the placement is correct for the filler hose inlet on both tanks, it's just a matter of using the right filler neck/hose combo.
