Do I hook a hose to the bottom of the fuel pump and attach hydra mat to the hose? That would have fuel pump on the shelf and the hydra mat on the tank floor.

Here's a picture of the Holley fuel pump on the sender.

Does this look correct?

This is what it looks like with the rubber pump cover on it.

Here's a picture of the hydramats I have.

Which is the best one to use?
Neither of those are a Hydramat... those are regular fuel filter socks. When you do acquire a hydramat though, yes it is supposed to sit at the bottom of the tank.
You'll notice a Hydramat has small dimples across it's surface and they're also crazy expensive. When I recently went to dual fuel pumps in one of my other cars, each of the Hydramats I used were well over $200 each.

Wow! Thank you. I was told that I was getting a hydramat when it was ordered. I guess better see if I can get one.

For my situation, with a fuel tank without baffles, how do I pick the right one for this tank?

How are you going to run the wires through the sender top?

Unless you are consuming crazy amounts of fuel at a high rate, any normal sized fuel mesh filter sock laying on the bottom of the tank should work for you. It certainly does for my sedately-driven 5.3 liter LS motor with an in-tank fuel pump.

And Scott poses an excellent question about feeding the power wires for your fuel pump.

Yes, it should work well, no problems. The only other difference that I can see might be that these two types of material might have different filtration capabilities.

Which would not matter to me because I have a Wix inline filter immediately after the pressure regulator assembly. I think this inline filter traps particles and debris down to 100 microns in size. They make 30 micron filters but I saw no need for that.

It all seems to be working well as I approach 10,000 miles since its resurrection.

Here's a picture of the wires coming out of the sender cover.

The red and black sticking out in the air are the pump wires I need to hook up to the unit.

Here's a picture of the sender wire end.

Are there ends that I can get to seal the wire connectors? Or is there a way to cover my wire connectors so it will be a sealed connection?
