Fuel reservior delete?

89 f150 5.0.
Has anyone just deleted the reservior completely? I have no use for 2 tanks and have a valve messing up and allowing fuel into the wrong tank, so just curious if anyone has deleted it and if so what all needs to be done.

To remove the reservoir completely you end up going to the later-years system of in-tank high pressure pumps and the associated hardware.

Just put a selector/reservoir in one of my 89's, it was $170.00.

Use the search feature and you'll find more info.

To swap to the later fuel system you would need the fuel lines and a tank with FDM from a '90+ truck, or you could simply swap in a single function resovoir from an older single tank truck. The device currently on your dual tank truck is called a dual function resovoir.

On my 87. I use the single tank. I used a reservoir out of a Bronco. They use the single take and reservoir.

The reservoir is just that...a reservoir. Removing it may result in stalling when the vehicle is going up hill or at other angles. Everyone highly suggests getting a Single Fuel Reservoir as a replacement.
