Use steel braid and you can get a adapter to go into the tank to a AN 6 size for a fuel line safe connection o more fuel lines leak

When messing with fuel lines under the bus, disconnect the ground from the battery.

If you make a spark by hitting the starter, it is not a good thing to have gas drips. In fact, it is a really, really bad thing. Don't go there.
If you do get severe burns, get in the shower and run it cold to cool you down and stop your flesh from cooking. It will make the damage less.

The nut is 22mm
Good to make sure the metal mesh screen sock (#27 in diagram) is intact. If it is fine, no reason to replace. If the mesh is torn, replace it.
The seal/gaskets are the same red ones as used on carbs. (#26) (well, the og lower late one (#6) is different, but you can use the carb one in place of it)

There is mucho fantastic info in the "Parts Manuals" you can view through the vintagebus.com website!

Here is just one set of the pages there:

The fuel line running from the fuel tank to the fuel pump for the most part is hard metal fuel lines, with the flexable fuel line sections connecting it all together.

Yes, that is the bottom of the tank. You push a rubber hose on the nipple seen there. If you haven't removed that fitting, do so now and put a new filter screen in there and make sure it at least looks clear before filling the tank.

No but it does have washers in there that need to be there to stop leaks.

I assume you have not yet pulled the old line off.
The big nut holds the spout on and also retains the fuel tank screen which you might want to consider cleaning while you're under there. Don't lose the small washer under the fitting. Clamp your lines.
