Hi you guys, can you please help me out?

I'm trying to find a fitting or fittings to run my Viair pressure switch & tank gauge 1/8 line using my top port on my tank.

Do I need a tee fitting? or a bunch of fittings?

Here is my tank info,

4 1/2" ports on the face, one 1/2" port on either end, and a 1/4" top and bottom port.

Thanks

thats all?
don't get the 1/4" Tee, get the 1/2" the bottom won't fit. Then get the 1/2" to 1/8" (careful some pressure switches have a 1/4" and some have a 1/8" male NPT thread at the end. The same with air gauges) female reducers. What I did the first time was go to Home Depot or Lowes and looked in the Plumbing section for their fittings and checked to see which one would fit (that is IF you don't know the size). Then get you a PTC fitting for that air line.
While your there though might as well pick up some teflon, it's only about .99 for a good role of it.

it would to fit. the reduce makes the 1/2 tank port opening to a 1/8 opening i did this on the hearse many a times playing with different setup ideas. only problem would be if the gauge is a 1/4 then he'd have to by a 1/2 to 1/4 reducer, 1/4 t' then a reducer to go 1/4 to 1/8
