Airdog help

Installed my airdog II last night and hit one problem. The fuel line from the pump to the engine is very very close to my transfercase and there is no way to move the pump further away. I read somewhere that you could use a 45* fitting. Where could I find one that would mate to a quick connect system? All I can fid are threaded in one side and quick connect on the other... I need on both sides

Why cant you move the pump further back on your frame rail? I have about 10-12 inches from my Airdog to my transfer case. If you have a shortbed I know there isnt as much room, but there should still be enough room to move it back a bit.

I got a short bed. If I move toward rear I can't fit the suction line. I need a 45* regardless. None of the stores I have been to have the fitting.

Makes sense. Maybe try a big rig shop? Or call airdog and maybe they have something they can ship you?

I need an AirDog 2 line kit -- to hook up my AirDog I to my truck. Where can I get the lines? AirDog doesn't understand what I'm trying to do.

I want to hook up the air dog I wirhout dropping my tank. Anyone bought the lines and connectors somewhere?

I had the same problem with mine and the "universal bracket" it didnt help I had a traction bar bracket on the frame there either. After fighting with it for a while I ended up building my own bracket out of the included bracket. But it took some cutting and welding.

Cant really see the bracket, but its just enough to hold the air dog bracket that actually bolts to the pump housing. Its welded to the frame rail and open on the top so I could still get the factory fuel lines or wiring harness out if I had to.

Had this problem with mine. Way too close to the transfer case and had a very sharp bend to get around it that I didnt care for. I notched the outside bracket to go around the body mount to push it down the frame further but it was jammed up into the body of the truck making all kind of noise riding down the road. Finally just moved it to the outside of the framerail.

You don't have to drop the tank for the DF165 install.

Also for those having clearance issues, we do have a 180* 1/2 male qc just like the return that may work. Otherwise you can go to the loacl hardware store and get a 3/8" male to 3/8" female npt adapter in either a 90 or 45. Screw that into the base then screw the QC fitting into it. That should allow you to redirect the line as needed.

Kyle - Does the Airdog 2 separate water better than the 6.4 oem filters? Is there any benefit to installing the Airdog 2 between the tank and the oem filters?

The new Baldwin filters we're using are rated better than most factory ones. I personally haven't looked at the Ford ratings but tif they are anything like the cummins ones, then they suck lol.

Well installing them with the stock setup under the truck is a bit redundant. Our system is going to move more fuel than the stock setup will allow and more than likely create too much restriction running fuel into it and trying to separate the air. Both our AirDog kits will bypass the stock pump on the rail.
