So, it appears DAD is out of stock.  Where do we get these now?  Need to cleanup my fuel system on the 86.

I think they have long been out of production. From what I've read they caused too many problems restricting fuel flow anyway.

Ok, I’ll take a look this weekend and pull the cover off of the top of the fuel tank and see what it looks like on my 86.  I recently experienced some terrible stumbling, hesitation, and idle issues after the car had been driven for say 15min each time.  I want to replace all the fuel filters as a precautionary step, but believe I may have something else going nuts related to temperature or turning on the AC.  Can the temp sensors really cause the vehicle to run extremely poorly?

What filter, if any are folks now using inside the tank at the pickup?

Nice find.  I’ll wait to order until after I inspect this weekend.  I may need to hookup a temp fuel pressure gauge and see what it indicates when the car starts running terribly.  Only seems to act that way after a period of driving, so I fear that it’s somehow related to a temp/warmup condition rather than fuel pressure but need to eliminate that from the equation.  I refuse to give up on the stock setup on this 86 and will fight it all the way to my grave.  I threw the towel in on my 89 and went multiport and it drives like a champ.  Very dependable car after that conversion, but want to keep this 86 stock no matter what (even if it sits in the driveway as a paperweight).

The battle begins!

Inside the tank at the pickup, that filter should still be available. I thought you were referring to the cone filter inside the in-feed side of the pump. That one most people eliminate. Did you try Rock Auto?  Maybe eBay.

No, I’m talking about the one that looks similar to the one croquest87 posted a link to.  That’s the one inside the tank that is not in stock on DADs website and I was wondering where else to get it.

Part #mb129890
Here is one place I’ve had luck with, getting parts direct from Japan in the past.
https://www.amayama....ubishi/mb129890

Otherwise, google search the part number and see if anything comes up.

Reputable place to order from! This one recommend by Scott87star l think he ordered rear end shims from here that are hard to find. From Japan. Just ordered 2 for future. $41.00 For 2 w shipping.
Planing on re doing 2 more tanks w electrolysis and 3 step POR15  at total cost of $100 per tank. Did one for my 87 4 years ego still holding up like it was done yesterday! Maybe this time l take pictures and how to if anyone is interested. Depending on cond of the tank it takes about one week to pull all the rust out to the sacrificial rod w car battery charger.Baffles and all rust free and spotless.
Things needed: Battery charger piece of rebar sodium bicarbonate(washing soda) water  and 3 step por 15kit easy as that
