    early 85 SVO (in tank) Fuel Pump strainer replacement ?

    Hello, new to the group and need help with an early 85 that still has its original 2 pump fuel system. The low pressure pump in the tank went out and I just picked up a replacement pump for it today. Dimensional the same, it will strap to the stock hanger assembly (obsolete) except for a 3/4" inlet on the bottom instead of the original pump's 1/2".
    Now here is where I need some help. The original strainer that went on the bottom measures 2" wide and 5 1/4" long and has to fit within a raised baffle in the tank (see photo). Before you point out that the tank is rusty, I will be tackling that next before reassembly. Is there anything available on the market that will fit in the tank baffle and get my 85 Comp Prep (1C) running again. Any info appreciated.

    Normally, a new strainer comes with the pump kit. You can find one here:

    That's part of the problem. All the local auto parts stores are trying to sell me a strainer that is 7" long and I'm afraid it wont fit in the tank baffle without scrunching it up to fit.
