    Fancy fuel pickup?

    I've got me a project going on, got a rebuilt 750 and I'm putting it in a SL650. In the meantime, I'm addressing about everything I can think of. Replaced all fuel lines, replaced all bearings and seals in the jetpump, new impeller/wear ring, removed oil tank and added resistor for premix, and adding oil pump blockoff and 3 outlet fuel pump.

    Today when I pulled and cleaned the fuel tank, it had an interesting fuel pickup that I haven't seen on here yet. Is this something special?




    And here's some more just for fun...

    Special, no. That is the normal sender unit. The 650's and maybe real early 750 had the mechanical float.

    ahhh ok. I'm new to this and all the info/problems I've read about must have been for the old style. Thanks for clearing that up.

    What you posted a pic of, is the style that has the internal float that gets gas logged and reads empty even though the tank is full. Most likely the one you read about.
