Fuel Tank Modifications

Trying to solve the fuel starvation issue which occurs at heavy throttle around a right hand corner (highway on ramp). Removed the fuel tank and drained it of fuel. The plan is to create a new baffle in the tank by cutting a slot 4 inches deep and 4” from the he end of the tank all the way across the tank then sliding a flat aluminum sheet in and welding it shut. This will create a baffle next to the fuel pickup. As the fuel return line will deposit into this chamber, we dont think pass thrus in the baffle are necessary ( CORRECTION – passthroughs are not optional, as small chamber would empty before the rest of the tank, two 1/4 holes were drilled near the bottom of the baffle plate to allow refilling of the fuel pickup chamber.

Fuel tank removed.
