workshoprat is starting off with a positive reputation.
Got the bed off today and have both tanks open. On both tanks the fuel straines were broken off. The front tank i retrieved it in 4 large pieces. The rear tank i can only find about 40 to 50 percent of it. I can see the whole bottom of the tank and its just not there!!!! I figure it disintegrated and got sucked up and is what has my valve screwed up. I cant belive they didnt put an inline filter in between the tank and the valve!

I checked both sending unit with an ohm meter and they both function perfectly. I think whats hapening is there is junk in the valve and it cannot cycle fully to the end and close the switch.

so the plan is put new strainers on! Remove valve. Blow out fuel lines to make sure no junk is in them to mess up new valve. Put it all back together with new valve and see what i have!!!
