    It can, but it needs to be stretched 1.5" so that it pushes firmly on the bottom of the tank. The aluminum housing needs to be stretched, as well as the al. fuel tube. It's a bitch, but I just finished mine. The hardest part was stopping the tube from leaking. LOTS of welding and re welding

    you also need to make a ring to insert into the tank so that the screws can be tightened securely. The gpr tank isn't flat where the pickup goes, so you need to put that in there to allow the bolts to tighten down enough to compress the gasket.

    mine contacts the bottom exactly... I added those screws in my picture to prevent it from crushing the filter, and to get some fuel under the filter.

    What year is your gpr? Did you have to compress the spring to get the top of the fuel pump against the top of the tank?

    I would not use those screws. The little rubber feet need to be on the bottom of the tank. It supports the weight of the fuel pump, and keeps the pickup filter on the bottom. I'd worry about those screws eventually wearing a hole in your tank.

    I may make a few changes, but the screws are the perfect length as far as I'm concerned. Because I dont want the fuel filter to get squished underneath the fuel pump, and get stopped up. I don't plan on running around alot on less than 1/8 a tank.. so Im not worried about it in the least..

    oh yeah

    Too bad you cant get the fuel pump/pickup assemble IN the tank, and mount it from the inside with the gasket on top , that would give you the extra inch you wanted, but mine fits great.
