Default Going to just one gas tank

Just bought this '89 F150 and it will only pull gas from the back tank and return it to the front tank.So the front tank remains full and gas goes on the ground. When you put the selector switch on the front it hums but still does the same thing. I am tired of messing with it so I bought a 38 gal tank for the back. Plan is to remove the front tank and selector and just run one tank. Does anyone have any suggestions or warnings?

Thanks ahead of time

Modular V8 pattern

4.6L SOHC/DOHC V8 (later castings, F3VE and up)
5.0L Coyote DOHC V8
6.0L Navistar Power Stroke DI turbodiesel V8 [5R110 Automatic Only]
6.2L Boss SOHC V8
6.4L Navistar Power Stroke DI twin-turbo diesel V8 [5R110 Automatic Only]
6.7L "Scorpion" Ford Power Stroke DI twin-turbo diesel V8
6.8L Triton SOHC V10

Nothing else uses this pattern. The only car manual that will bolt up is one out of a 4.6 or Coyote Mustang.

2003 F-150 XL RCSB 2wd 4.2 5 speed 3.55 LS

Finished my install. Was a lot of work. Now only one 38 gallon tank. At least putting on a true duel exhaust should be no problem now.
