    Problem is, its not a baffled tank, does that little tray solve the fuel starving
    on turns and takeoffs?

    Is there some kind of drop-in baffle we could use? Or, the late GM fuel hanger assemblies use a "jet pump" to keep fuel inside the tank hanger pocket to keep it from cavitating. Maybe one of those would drop in. Anyone have an unmodified one laying around?

    Thank you for the links! That tanks inc baffle looks pretty good actually. It doesn't need to be anything fancy, plus it looks like they plum the return line into the baffle pan so it should stay pretty wet in there. Maybe if I sumped the tank with one of those Summit sump kits, then put the tanks inc baffle down inside of it. Hmmm...

    I'm doing an Aeromotive universal sump for my 69 tank with an out side Weldon 1100 A pump. It won't need to but it has the ability to suck fuel from the tank a short distance. Her's the sump http://www.summitracing.com/search/...sal-Baffled-Fuel-Tank-Sump-Kits/?autoview=sku
    I can't weld or fabricate but from what I see here a lot of you guys can make your own. The install instructions are on Aeromotives site. A member on PT Mkelcy has this in his car and said it works fine.
