Hey guys,
Just got the facet installed, it is the one sold by rugged roads.
The problem is that when the tank nears empty, it starts to rattle.
I know that when you fill the tank it goes away, but what happens if you cant fill the tank immediatelly and you have to ride 40-50 miles before a gas station?
Will it harm the pump?

Mine only starts to "rattle" when I need to select reserve i.e, when the fuel flow to the pump is interupted and it draws a little air.
As soon as reserve is selected and normal fuel flow is resumed, the rattle goes away.
If the rattle persists after selecting reserve, I'd suspect that there is air trapped within the pump. This should clear as more fuel is sucked/pumped through.

Just my ramblings.

Right, I'm off to the lake district :D
