All gauges working except fuel gauge. Will check wiring tonight, but doubt that any connections are crossed. Like I stated earlier After I did work gauge was working, then a few days later went back to start car and new inline Bosch pump was dead and then also noticed fuel gauge not working.

It should not get sucked into the pump. The sock will take care of that. The step hose is available from several vendors. Very cheap. Definitely worth changing. That may solve everything.
Make sure the sock is oriented properly as spiderserie mentioned and also the fuel tank level sender.

Yes, I realize the in tank pump would not suck the rubber reducer, I meant the in-line pump may have. The new Bosch in-line fuel pump I also installed died after about ten minutes. Not sure what caused that?

I have a 1982 Alfa Spider Veloce, which suffer fuel pump failure back in the 90s when I lived in Ohio. A friend who was a Maserati master mechanic and was connected to Bosch factory guy, discovered after three fuel pumps, drained and cleaned tank, new fuel filter (and one added pre and post pump) that the issue stemmed from additives in the winter-formulated fuel (petroleum naphtha). The naphtha was eating the seals, as the pump uses the fuel as the lubricate. Procured a Bosch pump with asbestos seals, and the car has been running smoothly for over 25 years, still purring along, regardless of the fuel formulation. Good luck.
