UPS Favorite stop!

10 posts in this topic

UPS truck arrives daily. Wifee asked if I bought out the internet? Well, a few of them were Christmas presents (outgoing). The rest were for my CTD. She knows I bought some stuff for the truck. I'm taking advantage of all those Christmas Specials & free shipping... I should go put a big bow on it. Latest was used AirDog system... looks like big line kit & fittings. I'll explore the box after the holiday (if I can contain myself).

russ, you will love the airdog. my lift pump was going out when i bought my truck. i picked up AT LEAST 2MPG from having a lift pump that is able to provide the VP44 with proper amount of fuel.

I'm waiting until after Christmas to did everything out of the box & see what goodies came with. I don't have a good eye for sizes but it looks like the 1/2" big line kit & definately some radiused fitting to replace banjos. The pump & etc was off an 04 I think so not sure if the harness will mate where my OEN lift pump plugs in on the block. I see a relay in there. I don't know if I'll need some other hoses/fittings after I've laid it all out. I think I want to gut the OEM fliter housing to keep the fuel heater. Plannning to order a draw straw, so will combine other parts with that.

in my 99, you have to run a filter in the canister or you have a BIG leak. other than the filter, there isn't much to "gut" out. if you have only 1 12MM-> 06 JIC. then the the kit is meant to bypass the filter can. if you have 3 and a small section of 1/2"(less than a foot), then you can plumb the can in line.

hey russ, you said that your new AIRDOG was 2nd hand. i don't know if yours came with the instruction book(not that you really need it, but). I uploaded my copy to mopar1973man's download section. it is awaiting to be approved, and probably be up a little later in "other manuals and documents"

NO, it did not come with any book. The 04 is a CR engine, my 01.5 a VP44... not sure of fuel system differences. If there is enough hose length, could I just cut a piece of hose off, buy extra fittings? If not, I could add that extra hose to my order. I'd like to get a draw straw but am unclear if any of the mount to the original sender piece so a nut could be screwed up on the bottom to be sure the cussed thing does not leak (then reinstall the sender).

this book is for the 98.5-04, so it should be the same. here's that link to the book. /downloads.php?do=file&id=174">http://forum.mopar1973man.com/downloads.php?do=file&id=174 page 6 shows what the box came with. that book tells you to skip the factory fuel can. the kit doesn't come with the hardware to do it. i got the "big line kit" from vulcan and it was (2) 12mm x -08JIC(or was it -06JIC?), (1) pushlock 90*, (1) 1/8" tapped 90*, and 12 inches of 1/2"fuel line.
