    SLS airline size.

    Can anybody tell me FOR SURE, what size airline feeds the air bags, please. I need to repair a leak with the right sized joiner.

    4mm air line. The screw in fittings into the valve block are 1/8" bsp

    As an idea, go to pirtek and construct 2 of these - 1 for each air line. Then cut the airlines and put these in. This will allow you to inflate the bags manually if you ever have trouble with the compressor.

    Hi John

    I'm assuming the air valve goes closest to the bag with the stop valve behind?

    Yes that way you can isolate the compressor from the bags

    Anybody know where you can source the 8mm bsp studs for the valve block, Iíve been to Pirtek and FESTO and neither stock the 8mm units

    I've run plastic push-in connectors on my last three sets of bags with faultless results, and ever since I incorporated the "compressor delete loop" into all my bag jobs I've never needed it!
