I'm believe I'm needing to replace by drier. I don't know the history, it recently started leak after reaching full pressure, it's a bit rusted and have been told parts are no longer available... time to replace.
It's a Bendix 106365 in case you're wondering. They have another from bendix, technical support says it's "close".
The setup for the air drier is a bit confusing to me on this bus. I'm trying to understand the rhyme or reason for the current setup as it seems a bit unusual.
From the compressor, it goes to one end of the tank (1). from the top side of the tank goes to the Drier (2), from drier supply to the tank(3, on third photo).
Here's a link to the 4 photos:
See first three pictures in progression
** I have understood that the compressor line goes to the drier, not the tank. This has me scratching my head
Next is the front of the tank. It seems there is a line from back side of the tank to the front as shown... equalizing line?
Again, not something I'm familiar with... Could the tank be divided inside?
Next photo, a drain at the front and back? I could see this if you were on an incline either direction you could drain the tank.
Any input is welcome. If I'm going to change this drier, I want to know what's going on first... Thanks in advance.
