Default !931 gas tank filler neck

My tank had ugly blistered paint around the filler neck and has a deformed.dented cowl surface in the area around it extending up to six inches away. I decided to take out the filler screen to try working out the dents and noticed the filler part the cap screws onto was loose. It can't come out the top of the tank so I pushed it in and it's now in the bottom of the tank. Found RTV on the inside tank surface around the hole so somebody had tried to fix it before me.

How were these necks fastened originally?? I figure it will have to be a solder job to repair, but it doesn't look like it was soldered as there's no solder residue.

It'll be a chore to clean the neck for soldering while it's trapped in the tank, but I'm retired and it's still raining. Is this a common problem??
