If you read my post on the Mother of All Doofuses, you'll know that I'm now
in the market for a fuel tank. Since I'm only going to do this once, I figure I
should get a tank that will support a return line, so that I'll be able to change
to an electric pump in the event that I decide to go EFI in the future.

So those of you with 5.0 motors, what did you use for a gas tank? If you used
a stock tank, how did you plumb the fuel return line? What did you use for a
pickup/sending unit? Does someone sell an aftermarket setup that will fit
in my '68 (and I'm not interested in fuel cells - way too much coin).

Couple of answers for a return line. One is to put it right in the sending unit. Drill a hole. Braze a tube etc. Some folks have plumed it into the fuel fill tube at the end of the trunk. This is not my favorite because somethging in the trunk could knock it off.

You could use an high pressure external pump such as the one for a Ford F 350 and mount it right outside the fuel tank

If you get a tank with a drain plug you could plumb the return line there. I can't help you otherwise as mine had a return line from the carbon cannister and it was a quick hookup for me...

Go to www.autoworks.cc Scroll down to Fuel Injected Parts. They offer exactly what you are looking for. I don't know anything about the company. Maybe some of the California boys here can help.
