Question Sending Unit

Hey guys my fuel gauge has had problems since I bought my truck it is like it is a quarter tank off at all times. It sits pegged at F until it is about 1/4 tank worth of fuel then starts working its way down consistently and runs out just a hair under the quarter tank marker. But also the most I have ever put in is around 33-34 gallons and I have the bigger tank....

I have a feeling that the pickup "foot" has fallen off but that wouldnt explain my gauge being a quarter tank off, so I purchased a new tank and sending unit off of a guy I know for 75 bucks. Only problem is that the new sending unit is out of an 05 and up truck and mines a 99, the new one doesnt have the filter sock on it because the 6.0's must have an inline filter or something?

Will this sending unit work with my truck or does anyone have any ideas on how to make it work?

Thanks in advance!

I was just worried that because the new one doesnt have the filter part on the bottom that it might not be the same... Idk I guess ill drop the tank and see whats up with it maybe the arm is bent and I can use the new arm on the old sending unit and put the foot back on...

Welcome to guzzle's In-tank Hutch Mod Web Page

Could've saved ur money, but o well. Believe, ALL PSD to that. Mine will sit on F for 135 miles then start to move. If you do the Hutch mod, you can then run-ur down to 1/8 tank.
