This is the quick-n-dirty instruction sheet. Now that this is done, I can do the writup on it.
* Two 1/8" NPT T-adaptors
*Two 1/8" pipe nipples (one 1" one, and one short one)
* One 105psi pressure switch
* One Caddilac air compressor
* One female quick-disconnect (with female 1/4" NPT input)
* One 1/4" (male) to 1/8" (female) NPT adaptor
* One ARB solonoid
* One 1/8" instant pipe fitting
First of all, you need to realize just what you are replacing. The ARB compressor has three 1/8" BST female fittings on it. Thankfully for us, we can use 1/8" NPT fittings as a replacment.
The three fittings are for the two lockers and the pressure switch. One of them can also be used for airing up tires, by using the ARB tire fill kit.
(Quick hint: use teflon tape (2 layers) on each male NPT before screwing it into the associated female fitting)
So, we need 3 outputs, and one input (for the compressor). In the Lowes/Home Depot based garage, I did this with two 1/8" NPT T-adaptors. These each have three 1/8" female fittings. One fitting on each T-adaptor goes to the other T-adaptor.
So now we have our "manifold." We are going to connect the compressor input, locker output, pressure switch, and female disconnect to this manifold. I suggest connecting the compressor input to one "end" of the manifold. Then the quick-disconnect, then the ARB solonoid, then the pressure switch at the other end of the manifold.
Note: DO NOT TIGHTEN THE ARB SOLONOID TO THE MANIFOLD BY TURNING ON THE BLACK PART OF IT - USE A WRENCH ON THE ALUMINUM HOUSING
