  1. Best I understand, these are the three pressure sensors for the three air tanks on the second gen Volvo.
  2. The passthrough(Volvo) under the dash above your left foot.
  3. Thank you for the update:)
  4. From the times I have tried it, I was able to heat the connectors and twist them apart while the glue is hot and malleable.
  5. I would suspect it would work both ways, if you remove the threaded end, you may also be able to remove the short connector pipe as well. Then replace with a more suitable length of pipe to add the SharkBite.
  6. You could heat the threaded PVC reducer enough to remove it from the surrounding pipe. Then replace with a length of pipe suitable for the shark bite. This would reduce the number of connections. Be gentle when adding heat to the PVC, you only want to soften the glue and twist out the threaded adapter. Look for a video on the YouTube on removing and reusing PVC elbows and the like. The Sharkbite should also help to isolate vibrations.

    Trailer Batteries

    I prefer the Optima Yellow tops, I have them in my Jeep, my Dodge One Ton, and the ancient ones from the Dodge are now in the trailer. One is 10 years old and the other is 11 years old. I use them to make coffee, watch tv and toast bread in the camper when traveling. I keep them topped off with a battery minder.

  9. I bought the factory pins from Dex if I remember correctly https://www.dexheavydutyparts.com/
  10. So....... Between rain drops, I moved the truck in the driveway and chalked the wheels. Released the park brake, first thing I noticed was a lot of travel from the pushrod. I adjusted the slack adjuster, shoes tight to the drum, then pried up the cam lock and backed off a 1/2 turn. Then found a new leak on the center air tank. Removed the leaky fitting, disassembled the PTC, removed the brittle O-ring, and replaced with new. Trimmed the air line, and reassembled. No more leak there. Restarted the truck, released the parking brake, and climbed under the truck. Heard an air leak internally on the park side of the can where the brakes stick. Replaced the piggy back, readjusted the slack adjuster took the truck for a spin, parked it. Came inside had a beer, then wrote this long winded explanation of what I did so far. Now I am going to have another beer. I will check the truck again on Monday.👍
  11. Sure does ..... Blyat!!!! Sukah!!! LOL 😄
  12. So far I have had luck just plugging the small tractor tires. If the leak is at the rim, I break down the bead sand the rim and tire bead smooth add some green slime and air back up I do want to try the foam idea though.
