Hello all

I have removed the tank on my mite. The sending unit is toast. Ordered an new one from D&L Bensinger. My valve is ok. I am worried about the integrity of the fuel strainer, and was looking for suggestions and or recommendations.

Thanks

To my knowledge, there is NO OEM fuel strainer available for the MM. It was unique to the vehicle. On mine, I put a new gasket on the bottom access panel to the old strainer area and sealed all the bolts, knowing I would probably never remove it again. For the intake tube inside, IF your tube is still in good shape, then just remove the strainer and leave the tube assemble intact. My tube was completely rusted away. I got a new fitting for the top, and silver soldered a new intake tube to it the right length. I have installed a standard inline fuel filter just prior to the pump. You could install it pretty much anywhere in the line, I chose the pump location. Works great.

Hello thanks for the reply.

My tube is in great shape and I could probably reuse what I have. It is stained but not damaged. I was thinking that I could find a strainer that would attach to the tube. I have been thinking of doing the same thing you did. So what filter did you go with?

Thanks
