  1. Where does one get wire diagrams? (Little alone with color)
  2. Finally install airbags.

    That was the brand I was going to install because of reviews I read. But most reviews are written up just after install and still new. Have you had yours for sometime ? Working as advertised? Would you buy another? Thanks
  3. Finally install airbags.

    With trailer hooked up (about 900 pounds tongue weight) I just pump till level ( I think around 35 pounds). A lot easier when I lift up bed by trailer Jack, put in air and Jack up trailer Jack. Pumping air with weight of trailer on...very hard. Friend with large 5th wheel on...bicycle pump I couldn't mash handle down. Last yr my pump broke (actually fitting at bottom broke and couldn't find another) spent around $60 for a stronger model. Still can't pump with trailer on very easy. I have running boards...and put valve stems where I can fill with air at gas station coin machine. 2 seperate air lines. Airbags were 2nd BD product I bought. First was their exhaust brake. No more of them for me.
  4. Finally install airbags.

    After you posted your first pic last night, I went out and doubled checked on mine, which is 2001 2 wheel drive 3/4 ton. Something just didn't look right to me. When looking at mine, I have another spring at top and at bottom. Not saying mine is right or yours is wrong. Your last pic you have an air gap at top of U bolts. Probably would be good idea to re-torque after some miles are put on. My BD airbags say to have atleast 5 psi in mine. I found out why the hard way. They rub just a little tiny bit with no air in them. Glad I caught it early and no damage to airbag. It took me a lot longer than what I thought it would take to install mine. Did you install a air compressor? I use bicycle pump for now...I'm still looking for air compressor to mount and hook up under bed behind cab. When towing wives trailer around I don't air up to certain amount of pounds, I air up till bed is level. Also noticed first couple months I had a leaks (from cutting airline with pocket knife) I picked up a tube cutter and solved problem.
  5. Back up gas fuel pump

    Thanks for replies...after looking at flow charts I'm going to have to do more homework in order to get right size pump matched up. 1. Going to measure what psi I have at test port now. (Test port up by valve cover) 2. Inside diameter size on current (oem) fuel line and generator line that i want to use. And distance of lines. So I'll be back...after I get above info. Might be awhile because generator line is hard to get to, but should be able to tell size from spare generator fuel pump.
  6. Back up gas fuel pump

    Posting on this site because many are familiar with hose sizes and what pressures do to floe. I want to install a back up fuel pump in a small motor home. Gas...not diesel. On a small 5.4 trition. I can work out most of the plumbing but I'm stuck on figuring out how much gas I can get through a certain size line. I have a gas line much smaller in size that feeds a generator. Much smaller than gas line to engine under the hood. Would be great if I could use this small line. What is it called...figuiring out how much fluid you can a certain size line at so much pressure? If someone would give me a hint...I could google from there, but don't know what to look up. Thanks

  9. Not much experience here but couple easy things to check out. 2 things.. 1 You have canister cover with socket drive in middle?...so when tighting, the seal gets equal torque over 360 degrees and not distorded over the years. 2. Not on mine but saw a fass pump that where filter seals against the metal was not perfectly flat. Owner had to really apply lots of torque to get leak proof. Which he broke seal sometimes. Shop was trying to figure out best way to get perfectly flat with file or something.
  10. Key fob and lights

    OP here...Thanks to those that replied. Digging thru owners manual...could not find anything that says head or tail lights light up when you lock or unlock.
  11. When I mash the key fob “lock” button on our 2001 , the doors lock, and no other lights go off. Wife that has a brain tumor has been telling me for some time that something is broken and the tail and front turn signals are supposed to light up also. I don’t remember lights going off when you hit the fob since we got it in 2005. Who’s memory is working better…mine or hers? Thanks
  12. Thanks..Going to look closer at what I have. I wonder if it's any great crime not to have a "turn over" valve? Old one had one but not new one.
  13. Shop Tricks and Kicks

    Re-doing my fuel line I kept messing up the push lock fitting when trying to remove the old hose. Neighbor who is long time mechanic showed me how he carefully removes the hose by melting it with the soldering gun. Using the tip, just slide it up melting the hose toward the plastic ring. Stop before melting the plastic ring. If old hose doesn’t fall off, use pliers and peel to separate. (Probably old hat but 1st I’ve seen it)
