Thanks
From the factory it did not have a spin on filter.
You can buy a rebuilt unit or rebuild your old one.
Whatever you do,be very careful working under your bus,block it up,use jack stands,be safe.

Thanks Rick, I've never used the Google custom search before....what a wealth of information. I will spend a few hours going thru everything and crawl back under the bus tomorrow to locate it. I saw in my "bluebox" air line scamatic that it's listed as an AD-9 type.

The LXI is all plastic pipe,so its easy to extend the piping.
Even if its copper,you can add plastic to it easily.
Randy, Big thanks! I get the two new hoses. How did you splice onto the main line under the bus (shark bites?) or a coupler ?

I use DOT approved fittings,i don't think sharkbite is approved by DOT or maybe even for air.

Compression only for air fittings. The plastic in those shark bites would break down after a while and especially when in contact with oil and extreme temperature changes. Risky to use those and I too doubt that any authority would approve them.
