First disconnect your battery, drain your fuel tank, then support your fuel tank with a jack, then take the 3 bolts out on your filler neck by your gas door, then take the gas tank plastic shield off, then loosen the gas tank straps, then make sure you drop the tank a little to be able to reach up and loosen the hoses on the fill neck and then remove the hoses. Then install the new fill neck.
Then reverse everything to put back together.
But since you have everything opened up, take the time to look over everything before you put it back together, replace anything badly rusted or broken, no sense to have to do this all again.
I would say if doing this on the ground with jacks and jack stands, with all hand tools, this should take you any where hour or two, depending how badly rusted everything is, it's best to.spray all rusted nuts and bolts down the night before a couple of times. I use PB BLAST, which for me has worked great over the years.
Hope I was able to help you out and the way I.explained the steps were good, if need more info,
This is an easy job, just a pain due to the rust and jacking the gas tank

Can not fill 2002 Ford Explorer with gasoline.

Did you check the vent tube alongside the filler neck? If it is pinched or blocked with something, just what you describe will happen. The air in the tank needs some way to escape to make room for the gas, and it should be through the vent tube. If it's bent, pinched, blocked, you will have a hard time pumping gas in.

I am trying to remove my fuel tank from a 96 chevy suburban and replace the fuel pump

ok i'm going to guess that you have a gasoline engine with a side tank like in a pickup truck. if you have a diesel let me know, things might be a little different. here's the step by step for a gas side tank. before you start, disconnect the battery negative cable.
1. drain the fuel from the tank (they don't tell you how, just get as much out as you can)
2.raise and safely support vehicle (get it high enough that you can get under it to work on it)
3.loosen the fuel neck hose at fuel neck and disconnect filler neck from tank tank and remove tank support straps and insulator strips
5.remove frame mounted bracket
6.lower fuel tank shield
7.lower fuel tank enough to gain access to fuel and electrical connections
8.disconnect fuel feed and vapor hoses
9.disconnect electrical connectors
10.remove fuel sender assembly and seal ring
now to install new tank
1.install NEW seal ring and install sender
2.raise tank enough to connect fuel feed /vapor hoses and electrical connector
3.raise tank fully
4.install fuel tank shield
5.connect fuel tank filler neck and tighten clamp
CAUTION tighten fuel strap fasteners in steps, alternating between straps, until proper torque is reached. failure to properly follow this step can cause bottom of tank to deform. fuel gauge may read improper level if this occurs
6.install fuel tank brackets and insulator strips
torque nuts to 115 in-lbs
7.install fuel tank filler cap
8.connect battery negative cable
9.turn ignition switch off and on and check for leaks
it's pretty much the same for rear tank, just different location, may have off-road shield in back and torque spec is 47 ft-lbs, not 115 in-lbs. you still have to alternate when you torque straps or you risk deforming tank. hope that helps
