Downpipes pretty close to done. Got them past the steering and past the axle. Hard part is over!

So I have an 80q, and I'm getting some cavitation issues at my fuel pump. I suspect that my tank outlet(the nipple you cut off) is somehow obstructed, but when I removed the tank to check, I found the outlet is hidden behind some baffling, so I can't see anything from the inside.

So can you tell me what the other side of the outlet nipple that you cut out looks like? Was there some sort of sock, or screen, or filter or something? You'd be a lifesaver! Thanks!
