Fuel tank, something in tank

Has anyone had something break away from the gauge sensor or maybe the fuel pick up, roll around and occasionally block the flow to the pump ?

Is this a good question?

yes I have had this happen. The sending unit for the fuel gauge broke off in my tank and every now and then it would get over by the pickup line and cause a restriction. It kind of acted like a plugged fuel filter. My mechanic was able to fish it out with a wire he made up and we replaced the sending unit. My mechanic also had a camera/ scope so he could look down in the tank and look around for anything that might be in there.

,,, this is just about exactly what is happening to my pickup(s). Yes, two, I had to shove a piece of half inch PVC in my fuel filler hole, and run it over to my inlet line, to get home, and whatever is rolling around in there clogged the PVC, but I was able to reverse blow it out. As I said earlier, it's only an occasional thing. Thankyou , !
