Ok so my VP died a while back. Ive got a full tank of fuel. My truck is no where near ready for a new VP yet. Its all tore down because its gettin repainted and so on. Im wanting to sand and repaint my frame since the box is off. Id like to drop the tank so I can get 2 it all, but I need to get the fuel of most of it out. COULD I HOOK THE BATTERIES BACK UP AND UNHOOK THE LINE GOING FROM MY AIRDOG TO THE VP, BUMP THE STARTER A PUMP THE FUEL INTO CONTAINERS???? would this work fine and not hurt anything?

Yes you can. We just did this 2 weeks ago on a truck and it worked fine!

You could just run a hot wire from battery to pump an run it dry.. bumping the starter runs the pump for 25ish seconds.

Pull the relay out of the airdog and jump red and yellow wires.
