I am (HOPEFULLY) putting in my new ARB next week after I get my air installed this weekend.

The setup that I will be running is 2 air tanks in the rear of the truck running off of an onboard York Air compressor. There is going to be a regulator in between the tanks and the compressor. Then a line out to a air gage in the dash. And from there, I will have one line going to the ARB and one out the bumper somewhere for me to fill up the tires with.

What I was wondering is, do you have to regulate a certain amount of air that goes to the ARB?

Let me know if you need more info.
But that is pretty much all that I have for now.
Thanks

I regulate mine to 60 psi., because the seals last longer at lower pressures. It has worked great at that pressure. I thing ARB compressors run 90 psi. (I run mine off of a power tank.) the instructions dont specify a pressure. Hope this helps! <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

Yeah anything helps. But that is perfect. So, I need to regulate the pressure that I send to the arb from the tanks then right?
That would mean that I need 2 pressure regulators.
Or am I wrong?

why run a regulator between the compressor and the tanks? I'd run a pressure limit switch to limit the max tank pressure and then a single regulator to the ARB's.

Put the regulator on the line running to the ARB Solenoid (s) and regulate it to no more then 90 psi. Put the cutoff switch on the line from the pump to the tank or the tank itself. Run the line from the tank to the air hose bib un regulated then you will be getting the full pressure from the tank and not the regulated pressure for airing up tires. Then paint the whole thing cheese wizz yellow!!!!

And yes... I would try and regulate the air lockers to 60 PSI... I have a friend who runs the ARB compressor & 2 lockers in his CJ-5, and it has blown 2 seals using the ARB 80-90-ish PSI regulator.</font>

Hey Whizzy,just route the lines into the cab and when you need the lockers on just blow in them <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/thefinger.gif" border="0"> oh and make sure you don't spit in it otherwise you'll ruin the seals
