Default 8t fuel tank ??

Just wondering....Is the fuel pickup supposed to b towards the front of the tank. I just got a 8t 1.0 and noticed that it's towards the front. Most of my trucks (monster truck)
have it to the back. Can u guys tell me if its in the right spot. plus it has a gold filter cone on the end of the fuel line that's in the tank as the pickup.
Is all those things ok? Thanks

the tank has a spot for the clunk .....Look at the tank on the outside and you'll see it.....So in other words No the Clunk is NOT supposed to be at the front of the tank. This will prevent the clunk from moving around in the tank when your on your lid....IF its at the front of the tank there will be no wiggle room in the tubing and the motor will stall due to lack of fuel.

ok. but i'm still alittle confused. so should i pull the fuel tube that has the cone filter on it, to the back of the tank? so there is extra line in the tank so
when it flips over the fuel tube can lay on the top of the tank and let it keep sucking fuel to the motor?

i guess i could have explained it a little better...but yes you want the clunk at the rear of the tank and in the little depression in the tank.

Exactly. It's called a "clunk" because that's the sound it makes when it flops around in the tank. If you flip the car upside down and hear a "clunk" then you've got enough fuel tubing in the tank. Basically, if the clunk is sitting somewhere in the middle to 3/4 of the towards the back of the tank, it should be good. Keep an eye and make sure it doesn't get hung up on the baffles in the tank. That's happened to me before and I was ripping my hair out trying to figure out why my car would flame out at half a tank.
