Ben, I think I actually used wire to tie a metal gauze
to the pickup. Then I installed a Fram inline filter
before the pump and it trapped alot of debris. Enough
to be replaced two more times. The fuel bowl even had
some debris. All was well after the tank was sealed
though. Maybe you could solder on the gauze? Good luck Ben.
