    The tank pick up is near the bottom of the tank and at the aft end of the
    fuel tank. Its basically an AN bulkhead fitting with a finger screen on
    the inside. Not much that can go wrong with it.

    fuel starvation

    The fuel pick-up inside the right tank of my Sundowner was 5-6 inches above the bottom of the tank. It would NOT pick up the last 6 gallons of fuel. It came from the factory that way in 1978.

    Read on BAC "The fuel you think you have".
