HELP with Air Brakes

Hey guysÖ

I was wondering if any of you could help me with any information regarding the problem iíve been having with my bus. It's a 1986 International s1800 and it has a Dt 466. Recently the purge valve on the air dryer started leaking (No stopping), so I couldn't move the bus cause it has no pressure meaning no brakes. What can cause that? The purge valve itself or it could be caused by any other factors? Additionally, where can I found the parts? If that is the case. Because, iíve been looking for it and I couldnít find not even an image of the air dryer. Which is attached to this post. Thank you guys. I appreciate any help.

I have never seen a unit like that, If you're not able to get parts for it, I would suggest plumbing in an AD-9 style unit.

I realize the skoolie life is a lot of DIY, but unless you're fully confident and know what you're doing. Please take it into a shop do have the brakes done for your safety and everyone's. I will change a lot parts on my bus but the brakes and its system is not one I will touch.
