Ok i got the pickup on. I didnt get it pressed all the way in, but id say its over halfway. I didnt want to continue hitting it as im pretty sure i would bust through the tube shortly. Is this thing in enough as it is in the picture (hard to really tell i know) that if ithe pan depth checks out i can tack weld it in place and call it good? Or if it checks out good should i just bang it all the way in and hope it dosent bust?

What is the part number on that pick up tube? And whats your pan depth?? I have a 8 and 1/4 deep pan with the same pump. I got a simillar looking pick up and it would not fit. The pick up tube went too deep and was tuching my pan. When I called the store back, they said "that's the one the computer said was for it;" so they did a mock up on a block and HV pump they had there and it wouldn't fit there either. They ended up giving me a moroso pick up for cost. It was only 10 bucks more then. SO CHECK YOUR DEPTH BEFORE YOU GO WELDING ANYTHING. Other than that have fun!!

They rarely seat all the way in, so if the mounting tab lines up with the bolt it's good. Since the pickup is on the suction side, not pressure side, it doesn't have leak issues unless it's loose in the pump.
It's in now, but in the future if you have issues pressing a pickup tube into a pump try lightly sanding the end of the tube on a sander. I bevel the end on my belt sander before trying to press them in, and it really does well in making them go in easier.
