Ok so I hdt got of the phone with adp and I was told that I could either get a refund or try a new adaptor because the 2nd bad batch was bad due to wrong threads?

I decided to have them send me one of their new ones and I'll be sending faulty one back(red). I honestly think they will give the new batch more extensive testing and if not I'll just give udp's adaptor a go.

Worst that can happen is I end up dropping a big coin on an ad2

I just got off the phone with Alligator for the third time. The first two guys said they would call me back and never did! I am not tryen to be an ass but this is my daily driver and I am kind of mad that I am going to have to go buy another $50 stock fuel filter to fix a problem that is not my fault. If my truck sits more than 2 hours I have to prime it. This isnt fun at 5 AM. Now I just got off the phone with Alligator and the guy said they are only sending out new adapters. And it will be at least another week atleast! So it looks like I am going to be out $50 for a stock filter and for a Cat filter because I am not wanting to put on a used filter. I hope they can make this right for me. Sorry for the rant, I know its not Alligators fault but I just want them to make this right ASAP.

Ok. So if I buy an ADP adapter, then I will wait a couple weeks to see if the new stock of adapters works for everyone.

Honestly man just go with nicktane or a udp adaptor. I can't recommend alligator crap adapters to anyone at this time.

YEP!!! I was pretty upset when I had to pull off the CAT adapter and put on a new stock filter also. I guess the one plus is that it confirmed the fact that the adaptor was the issue.

Didnt know that Utah was outside the USA..

At this time we have suspended all adapter sales. We have had hundreds that work without a problem, then a handful that have prime issues. some loosing prime, some have been leaking. I pressurized one of the "leaking" ones up to 160psi (which is 140-150psi higher then they will ever see, dumped it in a bucket of water and found no leaks at all. Due to not being able to duplicate the problems we felt it prudent to pull the product until they can be 100% fool proof.

Thanks for the update Jason. If we have already contacted Alligator about the problem, do we just wait to hear from you guys about a replacement?

Hopefully you guys can find the solution. It is very mysterious that the truck will run fine without any leaks, but lose prime after sitting for awhile.
