Fuel tank Pickup foot options

I am down in Mexico so getting parts is sometimes hard. But I could not find the fuel tank pickup foot even on rockauto.com.

so read a few people who just use rubber tubes and cut a v in the bottom and use a hose clip.

because there are so many lose parts from my broken up pickup foot I want a strainer. So I am doing the following and want some Ok or no go from some of you who have a little more experience.

I am using a car in tank gas strainer and adding a two way barb and making a good seal with a couple harbor freight o-rings I have to fuel line tubing. I have enclosed the pics, I do not know what the length should be of the tubing, but will work on that later.


does anyone have any comments before I do this....

here is my final

Here it is ready to go back in the truck, with cutting the barbs it is metal to metal with hose and hose clamps. i also added a small diversion with a 1 inch right angle coper tube on the return line. so the bubbles are a bit farthur from the supply line. I had to slightly smash the 1 inch tube to be a bit oval to fit on the guel guage sending positiner. I did not interfere with it. I also used some brass wire to tie it up as a back up.


here is the cut off of the barbs. removed 2 barbs and it is a perfect fit.

finished the rear tank today, so both are up and running and can now go to E and run..

I think only us 7.3 diesel owners can proudly say we are happy when we are on E on both tanks.... Only we will understand...
