burntice That makes sense! Hmm the inside lines don’t appear to have a hole. Do you know what I could use to replace those lines? Joe g write up covered a lot but not much on the inner Module lines.

GAmes The sliding function is for the different sized tanks it is used in. Some variation of that module was used in pickups, SUVs and cars.

burntice Yesterday I did get the sending unit out. The unit is carters with plastic fittings on top. The screen was dirty and metal parts were starting to rust. I’m wondering What the sliding function if the Module is for? And could the rust have caused it to stick up and not let it drop to the lower fuel levels? Anyway I washed everything, the nylon pickup line did not look to have a leak when applying some compressed air. I’m thinking the 3/8 rubber hose with the inner lining coming apart when I took it off may have played a big part in my issue.

burntice i Was thinking about making a door or something removable Incase in future I would have easy access as I plan on keeping this truck forever. I have pictures somewhere of it brand new in 1994 when my dad purchased it and when he passed about 10 years ago I inherited it and slowly been trying to restore it. I appreciate your help and will post back later with the findings.

GAmes Since the hole is already started I suggest you not weld it back together. Fabricating a hinged door or a removable plate should be a cinch for a guy with welding skills. Dropping a tank with only a little fuel in it is a PITA.

burntice Well unfortunately about a year ago I installed a 12’ utility body and where the truck is currently I don’t have a way to lift the bed. I figure that I will be easier weld the diamond plate back in and of course Trying to get truck home the other day I just filled tank halfway.

GAmes Sounds pretty extreme. Most of us would siphon the fuel out and drop the tank, or with the case of no toolbox or 5er hitch, lift the bed.

burntice Alright after reading your post I sucked it up and cut a hole in bed. I only got half the hole cut today but I can clearly see the 2 hoses deteriorated and almost collapsed going from sending unit to frame lines. I picked up some 3/8 a1-15 line from west marine few weeks ago looks like I will be making a trip there tomorrow for some 5/16. The plan is tomorrow finishing the hole in the bed and hopefully pulling the unit out for inspection. Thank again for giving me motivation to check the sending unit, if the lines on top are in condition they are in then I’m sure there is something going on inside.

I try to avoid sellers who prey on potential customers lack of knowledge. They either don't know themselves or they are too lazy to pass on a little knowledge for education sake. Obviously, an injector installed on a 160 HP engine will give more of a power gain than if they are installed in a 215 HP engine. It is a crapshoot of actual HP increase, in either engine.
Factory 215s are often labled as 40hp injectors. They probably wont add 40hp to a 215 o 180 truck. Maybe on a 160 truck.
Hp ratings are useless
