fuel cell with stock pump

figure this should go under suspension cause anyone bagging will need to address this issue sometime. I didn't want to run a seperate fuel guage (or buy one, or buy a fuel pump) so I cut up stock fuel tank, and new alluminum fuel cell to drop stock sending unit in. You must buy 12" tall fuel cell.

I just cut threaded ring off of tank, rivet to new cell, then seal edges, extend wires and fuel lines.

why 12" tall??????????????????? why the hell does everyone keep saying that. if you get it 12" tall the stock pump will not be able use all the gas in the tank since it will be to deep. you need a tank the same height as the stock tank.

since with ALL the stock pumps i have seen they are only like6 or 7 inches deep. so you end up with 3+" of gas that never get used. why buy a tank where you just have gas that can never be used, and add weight for no reason. i wasnt clear before, i didnt mean a tank same depth as stock tank. i ment to say you need a tank the same depth as the stock pump. that way all the gas will get used.

raise your hand if you're taken your pump out of your tank? its a telescopic housing which will rest on the bottom, fully extended is taller than the tank, so anything taller than 12" will not touch the bottom

I think its made like that to compress is if you ever have to change the pump you only have to drop the tank half as far....but i'm a mechanic in a different field so maybe i'm out to lunch..i'm just posting what i've been up to and what works for me

what the hell are you trying to get at? umm since mine is out of the the stock tank, and in a fuel cell for a couple of months. I know it depresses, but are you telling me you un clip it ad just let it slide around in the tank unclipped? I understand what your doing, and i am not trying to start anything....... but the thing your saying is working for you isn't working for me. were using the EXACT same parts, so somewhere along the lines something went wrong with what one of us did. here is my setup, look familiar?
