Dropping the fuel tanks UPDATE

Dropped the front fuel tank. What a way to work on my sense of humor!

The quick disconnects I could only get one to come apart, I had to remove the fuel line near the tank switching valve.

The shower head pickup was completely broken down just little pieces of it left in the bottom of the tank. Oh the screen was intact and plugged with slime...The tank itself had a bunch of slime & water & grit.

Where is the best place to get a replacement? I'm thinking this is the place to go: Fuel Tank Pickup Screen

Dealer has it for cheaper:

Ford Parts - AutoNation Ford White Bear Lake Parts (previously Tousley Ford Parts)

The two fuel lines are different sizes. If you were cheap like me, and only bought the smaller size of fuel line tool, it'll work on both lines, but it'll be a PITA on the larger one.
