    Looks pretty cool. A few ?

    1. Is that a standard water check valve at the pump?
    2. What kind of mount are you using?
    3. What size tank, looks like a pancake type?

    Yes it's water check. Works but leaks down over time. 10lbs. over 2 days.
    Mount is custom. Started with OEM MB mount I think? John should know :confused: Thanks for york too :D
    Tank is a 13 gallon from a mack truck. Yes it was fun to get in place.
    Before install.

    Yeah thats my crap. Can't you tell with the cluster muck of wires and hoses running everywhere.:haha: I spent about $100 with kilby on OBA parts (Fittings, check valve, pressure switch, pop off) while CB just went to the hardware store and my shop.:doah:

    Nice setup. I need to redo my mounting bracket - its a little misaligned and it squeals. Did the MB bracket mount right up?
