Bow Tank Fuel Feed

Can anyone point me in the right direction. I need to replace the fuel feed pipe to the engine in an alloy tank, the problem being I need to repace it with a unit that is adjustable in depth and has a filter fitted to stop dirt etc, clogging the fuel lines, any ideas all welcome
Cheers

Tom

Just an ally pipe welded with a 90 degree gentle bend when it exits the tank. Pipe runs to bottom of tank but has no filter or access to fit a filter inside of tank

well i dont know anyone that runs a filter inside tank. you sure the pipe isnt too close to the bottom . it needs to be cut at angle so it doesnt suck the bottom of the tank.

take tank out and flush it through check pickup pipe then just run inline filter.

Cheers Burty
I found the problem to be silicon residues from where the tank guage senders were screwed in, leaving 10 blue silicone pellets in the ass of the tank, just a blockage waiting to happen
