    Hi Folks,

    First time poster....The "Tips" are on this Forum are great! Thank you all for that!

    Got into my tank today to replace the check valve assembly and found a real mess. (2001 Ultra Classic.)

    How important is this rubber sleeve around the fuel pump? Since its disintegrating and I don't want that junk falling back in the tank, can I just remove it and get back on the road for the weekend?

    Also, is that "tea bag" looking filter replaceable? (Its completely disappeared)

    (Not allowed to post images to this thread because I'm a noob. But you can look at my photo album on my profile to see the condition of the pump)
