[DML] Re: Fuel tank baffle

A good write-up and I agree with it all. I would like to add that I
have put springs into the pick-up hose to prevent collapsing. The hose
does tend to soften with age and heat. With all of the bends and if,
when inserting the fuel pump, you twist it even slightly, it is very
prone to kink, starving the pump. BTW the baffle does NOT sit centered
in the tank. There are 2 small bumps on the left side and the baffle
is supposed to lay there between them.
