Need One of These

Carl, be careful if you drive to California after handling that fitting. They have determined that it contains cancer causing chemicals. Good thing that you are not 30 years younger, it can also cause "cause birth defects or other reproductive harm". I don't think you have to worry about that though, you have probably already forgotten about that :D

OMG, do I have a target on my back! Randy, then Rocky, now you? You're right I've forgotten more about "that" than you youngsters will ever learn. ;)

What does the "tube" end of the fitting attach too?

( a PTC type fitting perhaps)?

Just wondering out loud.... haven't come across one of these on my truck yet.

Fits down into an existing 1/4" push connect if you need a 90* angle. I found the Barksdale valve that Scrap recommended on eBay for $30 so ordered one to have a spare. Actually is almost identical to the original Hendrickson I had on my steer bag. These connectors will be used on that valve, but may have other uses.

on this topic, in compiling my list of things to have, spare air/line fittings and line, is one of them. However, I have not found a breakdown of what that should include. Does this sound right?

 

  • 90 degree fittings
  • straight fittings
  • air line (1/4"?)
  • t-fittings
  • push lock fittings?

Any special tools needed?

 

thanks,

Shannon

Lifesaver kit should contain a couple feet of each 1/4", 3/8", and 1'2" air line, along with a couple of couplings at a minimum. This will allow repairs to any lines that rub or snag. Additional fittings can be nice to have, but these fittings will cover most emergencies, and get you rolling to a shop.

A good supply of replacement o-rings and brass collet

will repair

most of your PTC fittings without the expense of replacing the complete fitting.

Wet tank O-ring part # 85108488

 

I just replaced my wet tank o rings with just a 3/8" o ring 85146178. Seems to have fixed the leak. Part number is different, something I'm missing?

The ones I quoted for the wet tank are actually a bit larger than the 5/8 listed. They are o-rings on the external

of the fitting to seal the fitting to the tank.

Wow my lines in and out of all of my air tanks are 1/2 and 5/8.
