I just installed the airdog 150 on friday night, it seemed to be running fine till sunday night, now the truck just starts and dies like 1min into the idel. Any thoughts onto what it can be? Do i have to pull my stock finter after this install?

did you prime the system after installing it, sounds like your pulling air somewhere, look for leaks, check for consistant power on the plug, bad fuse? it could be something very simple... but very overlooked...:thumbsup

I wish i put in a fuel gauge too tell u, i had to plug mine into a 15amp fuse for it too run even after i pluged both neg and pos onto the altanator. the only thing i didnt do while following the instructions was bypass the stock finter contanor... Is that a "MUST" and if it is how do i go about doing in.

You just run the new fuel line into the back of the CP3 where it usually would from the fuel canister. You should bypass it.

Redrider,
The two prong on the bottom of the filter is the water in fuel sensor and the top connector is the fuel filter heater feed, I believe.

When I installed mine I used a fuse in the main fuse box (I think number ten but could be remembering wrong) as a feed to the relay when key "on". I tapped into battery power for the pump using the large terminal at the fuse box and a chassis ground nearby.

I fed the Air Dog output directly into the CP3 as Compcowboy suggested, removed the discharge from the stock filter (and the filter itself) and plugged/capped its output. I figured that this way the returns from the CP3, the Fuel Rail relief valve, and the normal return loop all tie together, maintain the stock housing full of fuel, with all of the excess fuel going back thru the filter return line. I believe I'll also get some heat into the fuel from the filter heater in the winter.

Hope this helps.
Bill
