Airdog 165 install

Just bought the airdog II 165. Did some research. Couldn't really find much. I have an in-tank pump. I don't have the tools to pull the bed. Any recommendations for easy install? Do I have to drop the tank? What about the draw straw? Did you guys also use that special tool to hook up the lines? Thanks for the help

I looked around and there is a video on youtube that takes you step by step from start to finnish, and yes you will have to remove the tank to upgrade the draw straw. I dont have one of these pumps yet but I am looking forward to getting one when I have the cash.

You don't need any special tools to pull the bed, just regular hand tools to undo the bolts and the fuel filler. A buddy is a good idea to slide it back about a foot and half, no need to even remove the rear bumper, just rest it on that and the rear tires. If you don't have anybody to help its not real expensive to rent a engine hoist for a day or two, doesn't take long to do the in tank part and everything can be back together quickly. Pulling the tank will be a major undertaking, lots of hassle doing it that way. No tools required for hooking any of the fuel lines up, push on fittings until they click, its that easy. Make sure to route your fuel lines carefully near any edges that could wear into them. The hardest part is going to be neatly routing the wiring harness and deciding where you will mount the pump. Good luck!

you will need a release tool to un-hook the factory lines from the original fuel pump. thats the only special tool you will need.

You can remove it without special tools. Just pinch both blue tabs and pull the line off.

One other thing, when drilling and installing the straw into the in tank module and cutting out the original lift pump, be careful as the plastic is rather brittle. A new fuel module from Dodge is very expensive. I cracked mine while drilling it and ended up spreading silicone around the top to keep it from leaking. Going to pull it back apart again in the next couple weeks and put JB Weld around it as the silicone is only a temporary fix and the Diesel will likely eat through it. Also be sure to watch the rubber gasket around the top of the tank as it is easy to pinch or drop down in the tank while reinstalling the module.

You might want to try some Permatex Hylomar Universal Blue. You can get it at any parts house. It's meant for fuel and it isn't a silicone base. I used it on a leaking fuel flange on my motorcycle several months ago and it hasn't leaked a drop. Its meant for high heat areas and doesn't mind if its in an area that is repeatedly taken apart and put back together. It's some awesome stuff and seems a little less permanent than JB Weld.
