Question wet tank

In previous threads I have noticed the discussions that involved wet tank in the air compression system.

Can anyone tell me were the wet tank would be on a 85 PT36?

I'm an FC kinda guy, but on all air brake vehicles, the wet tank is the tank that the air goes to first. If you have an air dryer, there will be two large lines and one small line attached to it. One large line is from the compressor. The other large line goes to the wet tank. The small line is from the governor on the compressor and it tells the purge valve on the air dryer to purge the accumulated water out the bottom. The wet tank is so named from back in the day before air dryers, the hot, moist air from the compressor reached the cold tank and condensed and you had to drain the tanks manually.
