Hellmanns Sump

Got my sump on today. Ever since I installed the Airdog, I can't get below 1/4 tank without running out of fuel pressure. Its a known problem on the FASS and AD systems. Got this from Joe a few months back and finally got it installed today. Now I run to the very bottom of the tank. Best $$$$ I have spent in a long time. And Yes, I cleaned up the wire and zip tied the hose up.

I like it for race apps but for daily drivin I know it'd be fine 99% of the time but I just don't like the idea of havin it exposed to everything like that. I could def. hit it while in in the field for work/hunting. As for 1/4 issue mine holds steady even when the fuel light is on. What pickup are you using?

is there some type of filter on the inside of the tank or is it just running through the AD?

The hardest part was dropping the tank. Not bad after that.

Looks good. I just ordered one of these from Joe the other day. It looks like a HUGE improvement over the draw straw. Nice work.

Ya, I know, me too. And I wasn't trying to pull a d*ck move on Hellmann either. Just wanted anyone to be aware in case an edumakated DOT trooper sees it hangin' down and decides to be a d*ck.

I could be wrong but I don't think Tim's truck is commercial.
