I misspoke here. Obviously the screen isn't a basket because it won't hold fuel and if it did there wouldn't be enough in it to drive 10 feet. I put together this thread, and perhaps D89 will see fit to add it to the tech section.

Fuel (and dirt) can and will bypass it in the canister. If it was redundant we wouldn't have all the threads where cleaning the pre-filter solved a fuel pressure problem.
I never even considered this when I bypassed the heater setup. Should I go ahead and put a pre-filter on the frame rail down where I started the rubber lines? If so, any recommendations? I have a new Fram inline fuel filter in my garage, what about using that?

I wish I could help you with good technical advice, but I can't. There are a few threads about installing a filter prior to the lift pump. When I deleted the heater that is all I did. Unscrewed the pre-filter screen holder, unscrewed the heater element, then installed the pre-filter holder into the vacant hole. 10 minute job, just a small diesel bath.
