Instralling ITP 5/8" pickup.

I dropped my tank today because the fuel gauge was reading full for the last week. (The float was stuck at the top.)

While I was working on the tank, I checked the depth of my pickup. It's about 1/2" from the bottom of the tank. Does that sound about right?

I figure if it's too low, it could impede the suction.

I just read the instructions on Dennis' site, and it says to leave a 1/4". That Sucks. Mine is already cut at 1/2".

In that case I would like to retract my last statement. Woo Hoo

I also found that the feed line was twisted and kinked at the fitting. The vent lines were also goofy. Looks like I'm making a run to Orme Bros tomorrow.

Re: Instralling ITP 5/8" pickup.

I have mine set at 50psi. It's easier on the pump at idle. Of course i have my regulator boost-referenced, so for every pound of boost i get .9-1.0 psi of fuel pressure. Just how it should work, only lots of pressure when ya need it.
