Various Fuel Pickups... or rather few options...

Recommended Posts

I'm really underwhelmed. I see elegant bilet machined fittings... that are seemingly "just" pressed into an inferior rubber gromet. There does not seem to be any compression... no nut on the inside. No flange bolted down. I see lots of pictures that seem to indicate fuel leakage on top of the tank. Am I missing something?I've worked on built tanks in the marine industry... Threaded holes. Under flanges with gaskets. Threaded tank tops. I've seen metal tanks fail (after immersion in salt water)... a handful in 20,000 installations. I've seen fill hoses get loose & leak... a couple in 20,000 installations. I just can't go for a defective design. It just seems that inferior designs are the norm here. I don't want to fill my truck to the cap (up the spout)... but it has happened. I have filled my old C30 saddle tanks (2) 20s to the cap, no leaks... sometimes on purpose before hooking up because it was hard to get fuel. If there is a couple of gallons in the fill pipe, it should not end up on the ground!!

The only other solution I've seen is the hellman sump... As for the gormmet proble yeah you right I'll admit mine leak if I fill to the absolute top. :doh: But I've not seen any way fo creating a better mouse trap yet... :rolleyes:

With the flow you are looking for there is no reason to not use the OEM pickup converted to hose on top of the tank. It will get you fewer issues and stock reliablilty with plenty of flow.

Glad I am not the only one with this problem. Looked this week for grommet for module and found one at out of town dealer for $17 + s&h. hope this will fixes it. Vender said he was trying to get some grommets together but times are hard.
