Yes, the guy on the other forum thing is right, your going to melt that hose off the york.

But the big alarm is ALL those hose clamp connections. I've never seem anyone use hose clamps, and theres probably a reason. I suggest DOT hose and DOT fittings. Its one thing to have a slow leak, its another for your hose to blow off while your driving and your car dropping to the ground like the wheels are falling off.

What psi are you going to run? Do you have any checks?

I also think those manual valves are going to make adjustment hard. My electric valves, I just tap the back valve for a second and it jumps up off the ground, higher than the front. It would seem that your valves would be hard to work with just because air is so fast.

It looks like a high maintenance, low performance setup to me.

Have you powered it up yet, hows it work for you?

I melted the end off a steel braided line. I'M SURE you will be melting that hose until it expands and blows a hole in it.

hi. my name is jesse james. im currently busy trying to figure out a new symbol to use on all my crap. maybe if i use prince's symbol people will think im gay and get off my jock. you should rap your seats in orange county chopper t shirts. they should have some at your local walmart. while your there you can stock up on hose clamps.


sad, sad bastard

I need all the valves so i can do front and back and all 4 wheels seperate. I am going to get hydraulic hose between the compressor and tank and use fuel injection clamps on my hoses soon. But i have no leaks at all and everything works great. I run about 140PSI in the tank at all times.

i like the truck and how low it is but its just those manual valves look real bad with all the hoses just on the seat running all over, get some electric ones and put a check between the compresor and the tank, in case the hose does start leaking , looking good, post pics when it gets painted :cool:

Well Sorry to say this buddy. But the 2200 square foot house and the 2.5 acres really aint much if you live in no were :cheesy: Try having at least a apartment on NewBerry st in Boston. I bet thats more expensive then the cheesy piece of land that you own :0
