Picked up a cherry 1971 Continental, all original with 45,000 miles.
Previous owner installed air ride system. When I bought it he had removed the front air bags, as he couldn't figure out the alignment.
Currently just the rear is on air bags.
I ran the ViAir 444C's last night and the driver side comp was running way hotter than the passenger side unit. From an empty tank to 95psi took 3 attempts, as I didn't want to overheat the driver side compressor.
Over 12 hours the rear bags have stayed inflated, the tank pressure has dropped 8psi.
There's a slow leak from the tank (image of bubble posted)
I don't see a safety valve on the tank - should I install one?
While both compressors are running, there is air flow exiting the intake/filter ports.
From what I can gather, I should replace both check valves....is this true?
Also...why would one compressor be running way hotter than the other? could this be related to a damaged check valve?
Final question...for now The leaking port on the tank, can I go ahead and try to tighten it while pressurized, or how should I go about emptying the tank 82psi with no relief valve.
