The purpose in the filter near the pump is to stop the debris.

I have only heard of this happening once but it did happen. If a piece of debris larger than 5/16 gets pulled against the pickup foot screen...no big deal. If it gets pulled into a tube without a screen...dead in the water. I will put a new foot on when I do this mod in the spring. I have never heard of a pickup screen becoming completely clogged.

Perhaps I made a mistake by leaving the foot on, but for now it works great and the difference in how the engine idles was immediate. If I have to remove the tank again one day, I will closely examine the foot and make the call to remove it for good.

After 18 years of running the only debris in the tank was that of the original foot that failed. If/when this foot fails I don't see it plugging the tube up, but I could be wrong, and have been many times before.

As Bill mentioned too, I felt there was a better chance of the tube being plugged before the entire screen of the foot being plugged. Either way, I am sure I could "unplug" the debris by pushing air back into the tank if needed during an emergency repair.

Q #1 - You have to ask akcooper9, but they look like gaskets/hose washers.

Q #2 - Same answer. I have tagged cooper so that he will see you have some questions for him.

(slaps forehead) I need to learn the html code for that "tag" shortcut thingy! Thanks Dude!

Is there a FAQ for forum html shortcuts in here?

I used to use that in the USMB and in livejournal like mad.... was a wonderful way to keep friends in the loop, get someone attention *again*, tangent for a friend/newbie, etc.

There is, but the description of tagging someone did not help me at all. ExPACamper got me learned...

{utag}Sous{/utag} but change the {} to [] and the username of person you want to tag.

Amazon's price on this is currently $64.

Found another 3/8 NPT to 3/8 male barb for $10 (link:

) . Is there a good reason to use the MettleAir piece at $54 more?

The washers are for my oil drain plug that is leaking. Shouldnt be in the picture.

The part under them is the quick disconnect tool used to pull the lines of the sending unit.

Well Sous, I finally got my H-H done today. Your post was the main reason I moved this up on my priority list. Thanks!

Sous (thumbs up) Thanks! And, ExPACamper thanks for giving him the 'learnin' he needed' too!

akcooper9 That extraction scissor tool is that the same function as the rainbow color connectors-removers like Sous listed on amazon? IF so then I already have this tool -thankfully.

side note for all...
The 3/8" barb to NPT = I got them at Lowe's (with mil. discount) for ~$3.50 each?

now for another small question. Has it been debated elsewhere in forum(I havent seen any obvious one)
As for the fuel line. Is there data to pro-con the difference bewtween "regular fuel line" & "Fuel injection" fuel line when BOTH are rated up to 50 PSI? and the use of said fuel line is PRE-fuel lift pump?

At O'rielly's the current cost "per foot":
a) Regular fuel line ~$1.80
b) fuel injection line ~$2.60
c) ~200PSI MAX EFI line ~$8 or some such difference

granted I can afford the splurge to the low psi EFI line as I'm only getting a few feet.

I used the 30R9 because I could get it on Ebay for a good price and did not want to replace the line anytime in the future. Seeing as I only needed a few feet, the extra $20 or so was not a consideration for me at the time.

thats a good price break & the added piece of mide that over enginered brings to the table.

I'll admit that the bed mounted 109* gal. aux tank i have used (in bed) since 2005 was some fuel line & don't recall what the PSI rating was as it came with the tank kit.

their website died but, here is a yelp
https://www.yelp.com/biz/american-ta...olbox-frisco-2

I got it from the shop out in the Frisco area. It lasted over 10 years. So logically I could get a spool of high PSI stuff and have the aux tank re-plumbed at the same time as it would be wise to do that at the same time. Also mounting the 6 way valve in behind the lift pump at the same time I do this Hutch-poon-mod combo makes wise use of time too.
