Re: [DML] Coil in Fuel Line to Prevent Collapse?

I'm running a modified version of John's baffle with a solid bottom.
Prevents the sloshing starvation you're encountering.

He deserve kudos for coming up with a wickedly simple solution for the
tank pickup. It's a nice idea to draw from the top of whatever the
fuel level may be (I guess in theory you could run it down to
fractional inches). But the pickup has to be very complex to
accomplish such. You also need that flexible hose to connect it to the
pump. By simply drawing straight up into the pump, John's eliminated
all collapse issues. 

I've run a Hervey style pickup for five years with excellent results.
I converted when one of my original pickup screens came loose from
that plastic gizmo and jambed the pump. Who needs to worry about a
collapsing hose when the pickup itself is coming apart?
