Wrenching again!

WhooooHooooo! I actually got out and wrenched on the truck a little today. The first time since my surgery. Still have the oxygen on and it was slow going but it was good to get back to some sense of normalcy. I still have to be mindful of my split chest but it felt good to wrench on the truck again. Of course I wouldn't have been able to do it all alone so I really appreciate that my friend Greg comes over to "play trucks" with me. He has put so much effort into my truck it isn't funny. Friends like that are hard to come by.

And the big thing is I finally got rid of that stinkin AirDogII DF-165. Took it off and put a Dahl 150 water separator/fuel filter in it's place prior to my Fuelab pump. Had a heck of a time getting the air out and getting primed but now it's done and I will never be plagued by that POS AirDog again.

Another thanks to Rich (Lilpooh) for making me bushings to adapt the 7/8-14 input and output ports on the Dahl to the NPT 3/8 fitting used buy the Airdog. They were perfect bud.

Fuelab is the way to go for pumps. There is nothing factory in my fuel system.
