Call these to check. Dieseltuff.com, peri-parts.com. Good luck do you really need it that soon? It’s been broke for a while.

Got a trip this weekend, just thinking it would be nice to have in case this fixes my PAC.
Called, well emailed Dieselstuff as they do not take calls, and they do not sell unless your order is over 100.00. Not a big deal, just checking. Thanks for all your help,
sorry if I sound impatient.

How long did pacbrake say it would take for them to get it back in stock?

I did order the valve though PAC Brake, its coming from a shop in WA. I am in Ohio, they come in when they come in is what I got form the nice fellow on the phone. As LeRoy Stated it's only like 22 + shipping, they will eventually show up, just not on my time line.

Do not get me wrong the PAC fellow was vary helpful even gave me some names of shops closer that may have them, so far no luck sourcing elsewhere. He went on to say he did not know if another switch would work or not, but he thought not. He said they fail due to the rubber diaphragm rotting and blowing out over time. I had asked if there were any other common points of failure, he said no.

Randy, I am coming to the conclusion I know a lot about nothing, and most of what I do know is wrong. I am concerned if I match this thing up physically the inner workings would not be the same, I would think they are not all made the same and with out any exterior markings that I can see, Id think there are pressure variances that would apply? I guess something would be better than the open air nozzle I have now when the PAC is applied now.

The PAC guy did mention something I had not come across before, many of you probably all ready know this but he said.
Lube your PAC before it goes into storage, and Lube when it comes out of storage. I had not heard the latter..

Hollis did direct me to one on eBay that he thought might work. Id asked Eversman if he knew of anyplace, his profession is a lot closer to this type of work than mine, he placed an order from Ebay, what a guy :-). We will find out if it works or not, Ill report back when it is in.

I have not seen the switch you guys use/need.
I was thinking it was a switch until you said rubber diaphragm.
I will say i have had lots of exhaust brakes on trucks and i put one on Finns Inn.
They were not hooked t the transmission,they had a simple switch to turn them on and off.
No fancy stuff.
I suspect if i had a BMC with a Pac brake,it would have a simple switch.

I believe the term Switch is has been loosely translated in a few statements.

In my case the point of failure so far is a something called "exhaust air valve". Personally I did not know this thing existed, I now understand.

Pictures found in post #19 and #25 in this thread. I didn't want to add more data to the server by posting redundant images.

That looks a lot like the Quick Exhaust Valve that's used on my Brakemaster air cylinder.. maybe you can find one of those locally?

John that looks the same as the part I got from pacbrake. I’m sure it is used in other apps. It would be nice to have alternative sources to get back on the road faster. I’ll look closer when I get back from Jefferson City we are heading out to help with the tornado recovery.
