For all you guys running manual valves, how are you getting the air hose into the vehicle? Is everyone installing bulkhead fittings in the floor, or do you simply drill a hole and run the air line through? Im working on re-installing my horns and am debating weather to do a manual valve or an electric solenoid.
What type of vehicle?
My truck has this oblong shaped holes with plugs, so I just popped one off and ran it up through there.
I ran an airline into and out of the cab floor on a 97 Ram pickup using bulkhead compression fittings. Had to drill through the floor under the seats. Good cab seal and good airline seal. Well worth the cost.
Thats what I did last time and wasn’t happy. The way the lines ran through wasn’t clean and they came out at a weird place in the cab (under rear seat). The truck I have now has the same plugs (both 3rd gen rams) and I’m wanting to stay away from that.
I was thinking of something along these lines also. Where did you find your fittings though? When I search for bulkhead fittings online I keep getting fish tank supplies:confused: LOL
fast fittings.com . They have a good selection.
Ill check it out, thank you
What size line were you using?
I used 1/2 inch airline.
Mcmaster Carr has a lot of fitting also.
