Fuel Filter Light/ Fuel system cleaner

1994 F250 I recently fueled up and the next day the fuel filter light came on. I replaced the filter about 2k earlier and was kinda ticked thinking bad fuel just contaminated the new filter already. I drained the bowl from the fuel/water seperator and it was clean and no water. The light only comes on after getting to about 60mph. I switched to the rear tank and the light went off. If i switch back to the front tank the light may or may not come back on. I am going to assume the fuel strainer on the front tank is getting plugged. My question is- Does anyone know of a good diesel fuel system cleaner i can throw in there until the tank gets low? After that if need be, i will drop the tank and pull the assembly and strainer? Or, am i looking at another problem? (probably will have to drop the tank before we can jump to that one). Thanks

Looking for a strainer with no luck, some google images shows a black umbrella thing. do these not have a fuel strainer in the tank?

Nope, just the pick-up boot AKA "foot". The filter in the engine valley does it all. I use Power Service Diesel Kleen. It's winter (kinda) so use the white bottle.

I decided to drain and drop the tank, and this is what was left inside. I found a replacement part on Amazon. I hope it is the right one. Part# E5TZ-9J306-BA

Careful with that sending unit and float. A gold bar is cheaper then a new one of those.

I drove it for about a week since i replaced the boot and the light continues to come on if using the front tank over 60mph. Could the tank transfer valve possibly be at fault? I am going to remove the line from the valve to the tank and check to see if any debris is in it. Any other possible suggestions?
