are you carbureated or FI?

What you hear is the gas in the tank sloshing..not a big deal by itself...

If you're carbureated, it could be you need a new needle and seat valve and float in your carb
If you're FI you may need a new pump with a slighlty higher flowrate to keep it from missing...

A couple possibilities exist like mentioned above.....

Broken baffle in the gas tank, sloshes around with the fuel, & covers the fuel pickup on a sharp corner common on fuel injected 5.0's......

I think you found your problem.... Those greenbacks would most definetly clog up the fuel pump inlet.....

i think you should plan on upgrading the pump. When you go to replace it; you can feel the baffles & tell if one of the spot welds has broken or not.....

If one is broken? Well.... life gets a little bit more interesting....
