Guys,

Just thought I would share a few PIc's of the Raptor and the how and where I installed this beast!!! Also might I say what a pump kit this was that I got from JohnB at Holland Diesel...

I removed the tank to install the new drawstraw that comes with this kit, did have much trouble doing this all by myself either. I didn't get any PIC's of the tank while it was down and I guess I should have, but I was crammed for time Monday evening when I was doing this, as I had to get-R-done as the truck had to go that night at 2 am in the morning LOL...

The next PIC will show if you look close at the make shift 3/8" line that is the OEM from the tank and how I capped it off with a rubber glove with a towel inside that LOL... I will locate a better cap to fit this later LOL...

Next is the system heading toward the CP3 and how I have the pressure sensor "T" in and then the 1/2" hose going forward. I had planned to use the 1/2" stainless tubing I have, but didn't have nearly enough time to do that, so I just throwed this together like this for now...

Now this next two PIC's I have are how I have changed this from how I did it per the instructions. The first two days on the route I ran it as the instructions and all was just fine, but the pump ran while the key was in the on position...

Which is fine, but not really a good way to do things if you was to have a wreck, safety concerns and the fact I use the truck to make hotshot runs for a living; I figured I better add in a relay of sorts...

So, what I did was to get a really double throw-down killer diller 40amp relay and use the orange with red tracer as the trigger wire and let the relay turn the heavy amp draw of the Raptor on and off as if it was the OEM pump that is in the tank... The Raptor now cycles for about 2-3 seconds when you first turn the key on and then stops till you crank the engine over...

Here is a close up of the relay in how I tie-strapped it to the hole in the fire wall flashing...

The relay is the best quality of its kind to my knowledge. They use these in many places, one being on Johnson and Evinrude outboard motors. Which I have lots of time and experience on those having worked for the manufacture on them...

They use these for the Tilt-and-Trim units and are very waterproof, so by adding the female spade connectors loaded up with dielectric grease, on the posts I needed and strapped up there was easy enough...

This way if the engine dies from a bad crash or whatever, the pump doesn't stay running to fuel the flames LOL... Using the OEM 5amp pump lead as the trigger wire only, lets the Raptor run as the OEM pump did, except its on the outside of the tank now and I can feed the hound out of the fuel to the CP3...

Here is a few of the relay and if I can get the labeled pin-out where we can read it in the PIC, I will have that too... Here is the Part number and brand name...

Next is a view of the busy end of the relay...

Here is a PIC of the pin out... One more time and maybe we can read the text this time LOL... Edit one more time... Why is things always the most problem-matic when your in a hurry :) Lets see if I got it all on there this time...


http://im1.shutterfly.com/procserv/47b8d827b3127ccec419ad6dc71300000026108BcNXLVo3ag9vPhA


Now that we can sort of see and read the pin out, I wanted to say I pulled the wiring harness out of the truck and put the section of wire I will splice into the orange with red trace for the trigger wire; inside the loom with the other. Then I spliced into the orange with red right at the frame and the front fender liner so that the wire would be somewhat shorter to get up top and to the relay assembly to trip the relay once the key is switched on and/or cranked over to start... Maybe this helps make sense of all this hurried mess here guys... Sorry

Slag,

I know things get a little more different with the short, but it would really not be any more of a problem to do this if instead of running all this with the frame, just build up everything from the frame toward the center and just make it right in front of the tank...

I have looked at all this on a friends truck and to just use a bracket to affix to the frame and then stack out from that toward the center of the frame rails and do like two rows. First mount the pump and then in the second row the filters. Now this is not stacking them one on top of the other, but more like one in front of the other but running out from the frame rail.

Now the AirDog and Fass systems, those all stacked on top of themself make up a much larger profile to get tucked up and within the framerail to help protect them. Again JMO here and what I would do...

Actually dude, I am not so sure doing it like this wouldn't have a pump and filter assembly that didn't just look way cool myself. JIMO
I have already been thinking now that I have mine all in working order, to rework this flow path somewhat. Change things from the pump pulling straight from the tank, to having it pull from the tank but have the water seperator between the tank and pump!!!

This would scrub off any water I might get and/or bigger pieces of trash, before it goes through the pump. Just something I have been thinking about this past week. So I can do this by simply rotating the two filters 90 degree's on the mount I made and then plumbing them as such. Figure I will do this next week instead of this weekend Grrrr, the wife has other plans for me that are going to consume the entire freakin' weekend. Actually with my wife being off all this next week also, it might be even as late as next weekend before I get to rework this assembly over like this, but rest assured I will get this plumbing changed over, but just soon as I find something to keep my wife busy with LOL... Least long enough for this to happen...

Anyway, this might give a few of you guys something to think about and several ways to do this with all the varibles of different trucks and plumbing of different pumps, filters and fittings...

Jeb,

Looking forward to seeing what you come up with. I'm running my version of your homebrew 2 filter / 2 micron setup and agree that it could be built out toward the center however if the proper fittings were chosen (which I didn't do making my setup fairly long) the whole thing could be fit inline under a short chassis.
