fuel tank pick up????
« on: August 06, 2009, 06:10:38 pm »
 :banghead: :banghead:  OK here is my problem. 76' Tahiti has twin aluminum gas tanks. I can only  get fuel to come out of one tank ??? removed the shut off valve and and blew thur the line, no clog the strange thing is the tank is almost full and i couldn't here any bubbles just a the air going thur. I tried the other tank which is almost empty and i could hear bubbles :screwy: has any one ever heard of a pickup tube breaking off in the tank or should I grab a helmet and wait for the short bus...... Damn I don't really want to take the tank out its glassed in at the ends :(

Yes I have heard and experienced it on my buddies Cheyenne. This was years ago when I did not know any better and epoxied the tube and screen back on. It lasted a long time and still works 10 years later. Here is what I did with my very restrictive pickup tubes.

Wow TJS,

That's a heck of a project you did.  My tanks are glassed in so I couldn't get that done 16 yrs ago so I did this:
