On the Lb7 there will be a plastic tube inside the fill hose. Do not cut it. Pull it out and run it threw the T. Also pay close attention to the directions when installing the fittings on the one side where there is the 2. Have to install one first and leave it at a certain angle.

fill hose?

the only T in the system i see is the one to splice into the fuel tank spout line for the return...

You sure you aren't talking about an AD150 instead of an AD165.

Edit, you are right... Read it wrong, thought you were talking about the pick up tube.

nope its the 165 with the adj reg and quick connects
That comment was directed to him. Install is pretty easy and straight forward, just make sure you have the fuel line disconnect tools.

You made a good point, I mis-read / understood what you were saying as well. i thought you were talking about cutting the pick up tube.

...

OP, you will have to cut the hose between your fuel fill up port and the tank, there is a plastic tube inside of this you don't want to cut. This is what he is talking about. Be aware of this when you decide where you install the "T".

On the LMM, you just need to make sure the T fitting is far enough from the fill port. I squeezed the hose till the tube ended and then moved further away from it.

I would let someone confirm any differences in the LB7, because I don't know for sure on the LB7.

That said, it goes quite a few inches from the fill port, but everything is right.

I didn't want to be too close to the tank or to the fill port.

My buddy with a LB7 and I tried installing our ADIIs last night and it we couldnt get the fuel line disconnected. We have those plastic ring disconnects but didnt help, they dont look like what the instructions say. You guys have any pointers? Sorry to hijack

Don't worry about it

Best way I found to get the. Off is put the disconnect tool on the line, push the line that you want to slide off into the tool and Then pull the tool in towards the line until you feel it "fall/grab" the last little bit. When you feel this the tabs inside have released and you can slide the line rt off.

And the biggest thing, be patient :) some are packed full of dirt and debris making them harder to get off.

Spray the crap out of the connections with brake clean, then try your disconnects. usually full, sometimes have to work a little screw driver in there to break it up some as well, don't bend the tabs tho.
