[DML] John Hervey's Fuel Tank Pickup

Probably should have posted this alongside my tuna baffle comments:

John's fuel tank pickup is genius in its simplicity. The only flaw is
the open bottom baffle, not only in design, but also in construction
(mine broke). The remainder of his pickup is excellent engineering.
With a proper baffle, it simply is impossible to starve the pump for
fuel. The pump draws from the bottom of the tank, where gasoline is
ostensibly coolest, rather than the top (the stock pickup rides on the
surface of the fuel). Installation only takes a minute or so. The
baffle is the only weak link, not in concept, but in execution.

My low pressure setup uses one of John's pickup screens, but that's
all, simply because he doesn't sell 6 PSI pumps or pieces of 2" NPT
pipe for them to ride in. Nevertheless, I always give him credit for
the design. Pictures in #5939's Yahoo album are even titled "Hervey
Inspired Tank Pickup."
