runaway parents Posted May 9, 2018 Report Share Posted May 9, 2018 Don't let this happen to you guys. So I found out I had a air leak in one of my cab air bags. Figured since I had to change one might as well do them both. Supplier had to order them in. Took a couple days. Didn't have to seeing that I already had the collets and o rings but I thought I would change out the ptc fittings with new ones. BIG mistake the new ptc fittings came with thread sealer on them. This was a very hard red substance caked on the threads. I asked parts salesman if I had to put thread tape on them. He said no. Sealant on fittings will be just fine.So I put every thing together. Went to air it up nothing all the air was leaking out of the bottom of my new air bags. Took them back apart to find out the thread sealant had actually cracked the bottom of the air bag where the ptc fitting screwed into it. Not only did this to one but both of them. Took air bags back to supplier they seem to think they can warrantee them out wont know till tomorrow we will see. So fare the seem to a purity good outfit to get truck worked on . Did not realize the bottoms of these things where made of plastic seems kind of od. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
