just purchased airdog2 i cut factory fitting

Recommended Posts

i have been using the carter campaign pump, for awhile now just bought the air dog2. when i installed the campaign pump i cut off the quick connect now with the new air dog it has the quick connect I NEED TO KNOW WHAT COLORS THE HOT AND GROUND ARE SO I CAN SPLICE IN NEW MALE CONNECTOR, to air dog. the two wires appear to be one white and a black with white tracer.

--- Update to the previous post...

The new air dog harness for the fuel pump connection has the color wires of tan and black. The company i bought the air dog from (SourceAutomotive) gave me the male connection i needed but the colors on the pig tales are black red.

Take a volt meter and check the wires after you bump the starter and find the hot wire and your question is answered. I dont have a wiring diagram but it would be easy to figure out.

i assume the tan wire on the new air dog harness would be the hot wire and the black would be the ground this question is really the only thing stoping me from finishing this install, all the help will be is greatly appreciated.

I plan on starting the install tomorrow so if I have more questions I call the shop on monday I figure its going to take most of the day to just get tank dropped and new hoses ran then I can figure out this wiring issue I am having.

Tank is only 2 nuts, just have the tank as empty as possible. Disconnect the fuel filler and over flow hoses, before you drop the tank completely disconnect the wires on top of the tank. Shouldn't take all day, unless you have a beer brake after every turn of the wrench!

My truck had the intank pump retrofit from dodge and i got a kit from AD to remove it and install the fuel pick up in the basket. the pick up is 2 piece and requires 2 clamps. I put them on the pickup tube, installed the said tube and forgot to move them into the proper place. It dawned on me when i started hookin up the fuel lines. I had taken a few pictures and when I reviewed them, sure enough, I never slipped them in to place.Are you going with a draw straw?

Little information about my install... When I got my AirDog 150 I need it like yesterday so I did the pump install and figured I would do the draw straw later after the trip I had to do. I found out very quickly on that trip that the AirDog 150 was choking to death on the stock pickup tube. It physically could flow the amount of fuel that the AirDog 150 could pull through it. So after I got back home from my trip which I barely kept 12 PSI for a low end number. But I dropped the fuel tank and install the old school draw straw that was included in my kit. Every since then I've never had another pressure issue related to the plumbing. Now a few times I've had problems with the regulator spring and check ball but rare. As long as I use my head and drive like a normal human I been able to draw down to 1/8 or lower with a drawstraw. Yes I see sometime the pressure gauge flops down because of sloshing air bubbles but since I've 2 cycle oil in the fuel I'm not worried about 2-5 seconds without fuel pressure. 150K on the VP44 injection pump and still going strong! :thumbup2:

It appears the wires coming from the AD are both tan on mine. The wires coming from the ECM appered to be yellow w/white tracer and blackpost-10340-138698183173_thumb.jpgI hope this will help you out.
