OEM Sedimentor ports

On the OEM 300tdi sedimentor there are two blanked off screw ports opposite the fuel in/out ports. Can these ports be used as an auxiliary fuel pick up?
Ideally, I'm looking at possibly using one of these ports for a fuel pick up for a Websato heater. It would save dropping and drilling a hole in the fuel tank!

Thought I'd ask here before opening up the fuel system.

Thanks
Steve H

Yes a fuel pickup for the Webasto will work fine as long as there is no way to introduce air into the "new branch".

Is it the in-cab heater or the coolant heater? Its certainly possible but In the research I have done for installing my Webasto (coolant heater) I have found some advising against sharing a line. Ideally you want a dedicated line for the Webasto. Particularly if you plan on running it with the engine off.

By chance does anyone know the thread size for the blanking plugs on an OEM LR Sedimentor?
Anyone have a spare one knocking around?

Thanks
