regulated return help

I had bought a regulated return from dozer diesel. The steel braided lines with the feul bowl delete. I have a history of ordering things i dont need. I put my air dog on to my frame rail pump then i started trying to run my fuel lines for the regulated return. I cant figure out how exactly to do everything were it works out. I also cant seem to find any diagrams on the enternet to help me. Anybody got a site that i could look up to give me something to go off of? Thanks for any help

Air Dog pumps have their own regulated returns so the one you got from Dozier is unnecessary with an Air Dog.

FYI: Straight from the webpage below. When you click on it, you'll notice it's referencing the 150, not the 165

AirDog® - The Original Fuel Air Separation System to Optimize Diesel Engine Performance

AirDog®


The Original Fuel Air Separation System

The AirDog® Fuel Preporator®, with the capability to provide fuel at flows and pressures beyond the maximum requirements of the engine, receives fuel under vacuum from the fuel tank containing entrained air/vapor, particulate contaminates and unknown quantities of moisture. The fuel passes through the water separator which removes the water and large particulate contaminates that could damage or jam the gearator fuel pump. The fuel, with only entrained air/vapor and tiny particulate contaminates remaining, enters the fuel pump.

The fuel, now under positive pressure flow, enters the filter. As the fuel passes through the filter media and the remaining particulate contaminates are caught and contained, the entrained air/vapor is also separated. Through the positive fuel air separation features of the patented Fuel Preporator® the separated air/vapor is discharged from the filter through the Primary Air/Vapor Discharge Port and into the return to tank passage after the regulator. The fuel passing through the filter media (free of contaminates & power robbing air/vapor and at pressures and flows to meet the needs of the engine exits the fuel filter through two passageways. The fuel for the engine, passes into the fuel pickup tube and out to the engine).

The excess fuel not needed by the engine is released through the pressure regulator to combine with the air/vapor and foam as it returns to the fuel tank. The regulator controls the fuel pressure to the engine.

AirDog® Benefits

The AirDog® Fuel Preporator® removes various contaminates, including entrained air/vapor, particulates and moisture, and removes excess fuel not needed by engines, allowing the fuel to flow through the regulator and return to the fuel tank. The separated air/vapor enters the return port after the regulator, allowing pure fuel to flow to the engine at a regulated positive pressure. A gerotor pump offers quiet, long lasting performance. Some benefits include:

So with a airdog 150 the rear cylinder won't run out of fuel? I have a 150 and I'm running out of fuel like crazy lol

I don't have an AirDog or an aftermarket regulated return. I don't run 6.4 banjo bolts either. I have the factory regulated return on the fuel bowl and I've NEVER (*knocks on wood) run out of fuel. At least there isn't much of a way for me to analyze that as I don't have an active fuel pressure gauge hooked up. I never said the OP couldn't run the Dozier RR with his setup but 2 RR's is unnecessary. On top of that, the 150 is actually designed as a low pressure lift pump utilized to feed a high pressure lift pump. If you're running out of fuel as you say with the 150, I would consider the high pressure pump as the culprit, but someone far wiser than me on the fuel system could elaborate more on that.

Correction, I ran out of fuel once....when the HFCM failed. Cost my insurance an $85 tow bill and cost me $600 for a new pump.

That's not necessarily a bad thing. Just means you're not dumping Andrew Jackson's out the exhaust pipe. lol

The airdog 100 and 150 regulated at 12 psi so you still need either te stock fuel bowl or a rr which is why I said ur statement was incorrect. Try to run a 6.0 with a fuel bowl delete like the op just bought and regulate the pump at 12 psi and see what happens believe me I have no stock fuel system left I know these things inside and oit
