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.
