Default 1975 jeep cherokee.

I have a 1975 jeep cherokee. Such a powerful vehicle, v8 360 motor and quadra-trac 4 wheel drive. I need a fuel strainer for the gas tank in order to pick up more fuel, any ideas

Just do what I did and you won't ever have problems again. I had a j20 with the same problem (strainer falls off and you cab only use half a tank). Just get a hose that fits the pickup tube and reaches the bottom of the tank put that on and get an inline filter before the pump. Since its carbureted and doesn't have an electric pump in the tank the strainer isn't needed.

Every auto parts store I went to it came up as a sending unit, but that's for the fuel gauge. This just lets you pick up 4 more inches in the tank and strain out any trash in the tank too. Like my tank is 1/4 full and it doesn't have enough gas to run

You will want to try one of the independent auto parts store, like a 'Bumper to Bumper'. When I was turning wrenches at a small garage, we had one just down the street. It was the best place to get parts quick for older cars. Even if they don't have the specific part for your Cherokee, chances are, they have or can find something that will work.

Strainer does not let you pic up more fuel it keeps crap from being sucked up off the bottom of tank a short pc of fuel line clamped to bottom of pick up will extend it. But installing a fuel filter b4 pump should be installed to keep crap from entering the pump.

Absolutely filter before pump, unless you want to keep changing pumps! On my old Chevies, they had a brass sintered filter in the carb we called a stone filter because it only filtered out small stones! LOL! I always used an AC inline can filter BEFORE the pump, not after.

The way the FSJ strainer is designed it also extends the pickup tube to the bottom of the tank. I suggested earlier to just use some hose, did this on my old J20 and it worked great.
