    Air Charge cooler back in place, AC Condenser bought it, ripped the threads off one stub, found one online $100(New) at Pit Stop Auto and ordered, may be getting what paid for but fittings should have threads. Managed to test fit SOME of the exhaust to start the order list for Flex. Finished routing the new AC Hoses, Drier is still off and capped, will await Condenser to hang that.

    Turned the above snarl o'Shat to this, almost to point to install exhaust under cab. have a few clamps tp buy for hoses and bundles. Condenser arrived it is hung as well, need vac pump oil to change that out and a ref oil charge can prior to charging the system otherwise all closed up and new drier on it.

    What shape are the heim joints on the clutch linkage? Most are froze up if anti-seize wasn't used on the joints-especially the free play adjuster rod
    from bell crank to clutch shaft arm. That really pi$$es me off when those are installed with no anti seize. If those freeze even with heat 90% of the time
    it's a done deal-Kenworth loves selling those complete adjuster assembly's $150.00.

    Did order the second stack upper bracket that was not in the mass of stuff, the bolt for the slide bracket about floored me but I am going back with duals AND Mufflers.

    Today was a Exhausting day!!, Actually have dump points Outside the cab now, temporary but out from under. Fuel tanks Next up and will install a secondary heat shield for second set of air tubing, be a little more extensive than the first. So much for Torca clamps, got substituted with prefits as Torca is currently NA locally or thru the suppliers I have called. These will do, for now.

    Now becomes a point in time for a trip to OK and swap the Chevy for the Deutsch plug kit and a few battery cores. Fuel tanks will be on and some fuel available to fill and prime the system, will then pull the ECM fuse, spin the engine and verify upper end oils up, then can get it running. LF Drive brake is frozen ON, so no test drives or even driveway run until is running, air system fills and can get after brakes.

    Must have done something to Anger the Air Gods!! Decided to look into why the Right Air tank would never air, added a T at the drier inlet and attempted to air the system, got 75# MOL into L Tank before the exhaust was leaking and off timing purging, NEVER ONCE got air into R Tank. Did a little digging, drier is trashed, corroded so badly cannot get inserts to come out. Ordered a suspected Chinese Knockoff AD-IS as best Price for rebuild kit over $250, best price for New Bendix AD-IS is close to $600, less air tank the knockoff is $150. Did pull a vacuum on the AC System, set a three ounce oil charge to it with a partial charge that will get removed to aid in drying down the system when Do go to recharge it.

    Diagnostics tooling, one shut off will remain to feed a Glad Hand inside the Tool Box or maybe hang it Straight Down with a Dead Dummy cover on it May just pull it all back off.

    Would have done more today but today was mowing time.

    Wish you had posted something-I have a good used AD-IS dryer tank mount. Actually three to be exact. Purge valve complete usually $95.
    Cartridge TRP AC1001 $24. The late dryers take a AC1001C $59 different threads-- because of the lighter engine oils internals had to be changed
    to trap oil.

    Well this was a impressive quick ship, From Spokane.

    Appearances are good, So Far.

    Have no clue if a Bendix cartridge will spin on this or will have to find a correct fit when that time comes.

    One note about the dryer you have above-Those off brands use a really cheap dryer cartridge, those have been known to start pushing
    the desiccant powder out into the purge valve causing issues. The PacCar TRP Kenworth cartridge number is AC1001. Just my two cents
    but I would spin another cartridge on it plus use some anti-seize on the threads. It's a CNC machined piece with aluminum threads. The
    steel threads on the cartridge will and or can corrode-possibly ruining the dryer.
