Fasten fuel fill neck on fuel cell?

Probably a stupid question, but here it goes:
How do I fasten a fill neck, fuel level sender etc. on a fuel cell?

I mean, the flange has obviously larger diameter than the hole itself, of course.
In order to get the inside flange through the hole, I guess that flange is splitted in two? But the the problem remains that making the splitted flange stay in place while placing the fill neck on the outside and fasten a couple of the bolts?
What makes the inside flange not falling down to the bottom of the cell? Is this operation done with the cell upside-down? Or do I use glue or something to keep the inside flange in place long enough to fasten a couple of the bolts?

Or have I completley missed a point or two here...?

It does come with a split flange with the bolt's made into it.. Once you put it into place, The bolts usually hold it up until you put the nuts on.. I did a couple and that's what I did.. You just have to be careful not to push it in.. Are you can turn the tank upside down to get them started...
