I had my tank off a few years ago,my memory is a bit foggy, but looking at the parts diagram to help jog it, now I seem to remember the fuel hose connects to a plastic nipple that does not look easily replaceable. The good thing, the tank is not hard to drop down,I assume it's empty now if you broke the line off so that helps! There's nothing inside the tank on the backside of the nipple like a strainer or screen. you'll likely have to goop/epoxy a new nipple in place. The fuel level sender hole should be big enough to reach inside the tank.
