The yellow box was attached to the bottom of the fuel tank and the fuel pump intake rested in it.  The idea was that going around corners the fuel might slosh to the side, but that box would give you enough fuel to avoid momentary starvation. if it breaks loose its hard to re-attach.  People recommend cutting up a 1 quart oil jug and slipping it around the fuel pump. Google it, if you want to try it.  you need to cut some holes in the oil bottle so gas can get in, but not too many. 

you may as well take the little plastic tray or box out since it isnt doing what it's supposed to.

Good luck!
