Received my airdog II 165

It looks like a few days of bad weather comming in so I have time for more research into the install. I plan to to document my procedure as best I can.
Ive loosened all the torx 50 bolts in the bed, so its for certain Ill be starting off with the bed jacked up into the dump truck position, to get to the top of the tank.

I Remember some excellent documentation that was done by a member or someone , but cant find it anymore. Can anyone point me to some existing documentation? The instruction sheets are good but Im a little vague still with some of the steps.

thanks..

There is a write up in Diesel Power Magazine. It's one of the 2010 issues I believe.

i just did the install, and I just droped the tank. It was a 1/4 full and took about 5 minutes with a dewalt cordless impact. just droped the front half and left the back strap loose. you need a 10mm for the skid plate and a 13mm for the tank strap.

Still storming outside here in Tampa so Im not rushed. Well Chad flynn's instructions arent that hot. Nice pics but leaves out much of the important detail. According to his pics , he used flared fittings into the airdog, My supplied Pump fittings are all female jiffy tight's so I dont know whats up with that? I switched to the airdog II instuctions after I saw that!

Ill Just Raise the Bed since all the bed bolts loosened up OK for me. It may be a little less claustrophobic under there that way too. Hell, I may do both , Im extra large and not so dexterous anymore.

Hopperwagonbob, did you have to use a disconnect tool to get the oem lines off the stock Pump, Ill have to get one if its necessary?

Ive done a mockup of the the bracket assy. and back plates on the floor of my office. It appears, If you mount to the drivers inside frame rail, as is advised, The airdog II logo and id plate point in and are hidden, because the tank side of the unit must point to the rear of the truck. I think thats strange... but doesnt seem to matter? Anybody Affirm that or Have I had a senior moment with the mock up?
Thanks for the feedback..keep it comming, I need all the help I can get, like how to best avoid a diesel bath ect.

On a further look see,..Chad flynn's write up is Not for airdog II. The article "incorrectly" describes it as as a airdog II but Notice the supplied male flared fittings. Thats the airdog Kit. Sheeze louise more wrong internet instructions.

yea the instructions are generic. and dont count on airdog for help their 4 or 5 days out on tech support. and no you dont need a disconect tool. and yes the unit gets turned around so you dont see the s/n or decal. and if you have a regular cab there is not enough room to mount it inside the frame.I mounted mine on the outside and made a metal box around it to protect the filters. I also cut and shortend my hoses with the supplied hose barbed couplings.then put soom split loom conduit over them. I also got an electric gauge and sending unit and hooked to an 1/8 port on the top of unit (look at the instructions for pic) comes from factory around 10 psi I think. Just left it thre fo now.

Ill be starting tomorrow, and will post pics and details as I go along. Not sure if I'll bother with the sending unit, seems moot to me at this point.
I have a long bed , looks plenty of room along the rail, and may not need to splice the lines. Thanks for the info, helped alot..
