I28 - Gas Tank Info

I have a 1978 I28 still with the Atomic 4. This last weekend I replaced the main fuel shut off valve as the original was getting sticky and wouldn't always shut off.

I got a suitable replacement from my closet Marina and unscrewed the original 90 degree fitting from the top of the tank and was sort of expecting to pull out a pick up line and possibly a filter. Just the elbow came off the tank as it appears there is a tube that runs down into the tank and was welded around the outside top so I expect there is no filter or pick up line of any type.

Does anyone know if there are any baffles in the tank? My fuel gauge really dances around some days when running the engine in a bit of a sea.

I do have a main sediment/water filter before the fuel pump so crud can get stopped there, but just wanted to verify that there is no in tank filter screen. Can anyone confirm please?
