Default K5LA air line size.

I wanted to know what size of air line should I put on my new K5LA set up? I have a Graham-White 353-101 1/16 metering valve also to use in this set up. With a 20 gallon air tank. This horn is going to be put on my 2008 3500 Dodge Ram 4X4 Cummins Diesel truck. Any info on setting it up would be appercaited.

Where do you find the 5/8 to 1/2 pipe push connectors at. I would like to use the 5/8 dot air line but can't find the push connectors.

I thought you could just use compression fittings on the dot air line.

Is there a problem with using the brass barbed fittings and standard goodyear rubber hose?

my experience with barb fittings is they have always leaked on me and compression fittings can hold more psi
