Filter Head Removal?

The back story is I installed my Cat filter adaptor from ADP the other day and I'm losing prime. Looks like the adaptor-to-filter-head seal is leaking a little towards the back of the engine. I get the feeling this would be easier to deal with if I removed the filter head like in their YouTube video.

That being said...I see two wires. Check.

Two bolts - already removed these once. Check.

Two fuel lines. not-so-check.

If I open the bleeder and let air back in to maybe drain some fuel back can I just remove these lines without having to do anything special? Once I hook them back up - if I prime the system normally should I see any other issues? I cant imagine there would be but I thought I'd ask first. I'm being selfish and trying to do it all from the top.

Thanks for the .


-Matt

Yep, you are right on track. Just pull both suction lines off. No need to do anything but pull the clamps and remove the lines. Once you are going back together just bleed the filter as you normally would.

PS - How does the airdog hold up with snow salt and road junk?

I don't have the air dog I run the raptor and Mine has done great in the snow, salt, and dirt roads for work.

Te AD does fine in snow/weather. It has a lifetime warranty. Pretty sure they hold up just fine. Haven't heard anything bad about them. I recommend a lift pump if you have any tuning. Better filtration and safer for your injectors.

Got it off and got it fixed last night. Turns out the sealing surface was all corroded. For some reason the thinner stock filter o-ring sealed OK against it but the thicker ring in the ATP adaptor didn't like it. Went after it with some emery cloth and a scotch brite.

On a side note - Am I the only one who has issues with corrosion? It seems like every spring clamp, every nut, every bolt on this truck is covered in rust and it's only like 4-5 years old. Stupid salt.

I never drive my cars in the winter - they stay perfect but this thing....everything is a struggle because of rust.

Oh yah, thanks for the advice by the way - it was easier to take the hoses off the front of the motor rather than try to squeeze my hands between the AC line and diipstick to pull them off the filter head. again...all covered in corrosion. Well jokes on them...now it's all covered in diesel.

That's the east coast for you. I see snow and salt/calcium for a good 6 months out of the year where I live. Pretty much on my hands and knees at the car wash once a week spraying the underside of my truck and my wife's car to prevent the calcium from eating through wires. Nasty stuff.
