Is that a check valve or a filter on the inlet side of the fuel pump? You're doing a great job...... keep it up!

It is a 80 micron (I think) pre-filter.  The other one in the other picture up on the frame before the regulator is a 10 micron (I think),

I remember when Big Red was first built, the fuel tanks were made from carbon fiber. Literally took months to build. When they were finished they looked like jewelry, but they leaked and were nothing but problems. They were later remade out of aluminum. Much better, especially since they were mounted only a few inches behind my head!

Can't wait to see your machine on the salt. Looks like tons of fun.

I read that in your book and now is a good time for me to give that book and you a plug, but I think it deserves a thread of it's own,
