Cackle after hutch mod

Did the hutch and harpoon this weekend now I hear what I think is the cackle sound. Also there appears to be air in the pre pump screen. Not sure if the bubbles are caused by the screen or not. I watched the fuel bowl fill up and saw no bubbles. I didn't notice this cackle or slap sound before I did the mod. Am I paranoid?

Here is my original post on how I did the mod.

Newbie here. I just completed the hutch and harpoon mod on my recently purchased 2001 Crew cab. I just want share how I deviated from some of the other ways guys have done this. I referenced the below links the most for my mod.

Parts are:
3/8"x8" uncoated brake line
5/16"x40" uncoated brake line (could have used 30")
5/16"x3' 30R7 Fuel Hose
Napa #3007 fule filter
3/8" compression fitting
5/16" compression fitting

My version is pretty much like everyone elses except I wasnt able to reuse the black foot and I couldn't wait to order a new one. I just have the flared end of the 3/8" brake line facing down. Also, the leght I cut it was 3.5" base on my measurements. Most peoples are a little longer, maybe I had a little different compression fitting. Also I reused the hardline that is on the frame rail. I found that after cutting those off the 5/16" line fit more snug than 3/8" line. This was good as it solved the problem from necking down to the 5/16" inlet of the fuel pump.

I used 5/16" hose from there to the stock hard line. It was I tight fit on the pickup side and the hard line side even without the clamp.

hows the "return" line routed in the tank? Only other air present possibilities, is at the feed line at tank or the clamps at filter...

It's routed out passed the float. The way the hard lines neck down could act kinda like a nozzle and I wonder if it is aerating the fuel as it passes through.
