You're most likely going to have to drop the tank anyway. It's a bitch, face it or hire it done. I've done many and there are few chores I hate more.
I'm pretty sure many people have popped a hole in their fuel pump plate to drop in the pick up tube for this. There is room. I either did it once or researched the heck out of it and never got around to it. I tend to sell unfinished projects often.
MGMetalworks (Micheal/Expovans) has done it and can tell you exactly.
