I personally think that the "Wrangler" section in general needs sub-subsections.
If the model main section included CJ, YJ Wrangler, TJ Wrangler, JK Wrangler, then each "wrangler" section could have "technical, and general" rather than one all encompassing "general" for all Wranglers.
seeing that the all-encompassing "Wrangler" section (YJ tech, TJ tech, JK tech, and general) contains more than twice the threads of the next popular section, it seems obvious to me that reorganization is necessary.
I don't feel like working on anything, at this time.
Any more feed back on the stickies, or are we good? I'm still thinking we need one more as a place to keep the non-tech YJ specific stuff like the links in the very first post of this thread.
Personally I don't see a need for any more posting areas. If it's YJ tech we have the main forum. If it's YJ related chat, we have a place for that. And if I add one more container we have a final place for non tech stuff that is still somehow related to YJs. If something does not fall into one of those then it really needs to be in General Discussion or at least Wrangler General Discussion.
I'm good with it. There is a place for everything. I like that there are links to all the important threads in the sticky section but the threads can bounce around as needed. There is also the "My Replies" button up top if you guys need to keep up with what's going on in the threads you're helping out or being helped. It, along with the "View First Unread" are the most important tools on the whole site
A belt driven Saneen custom modded for oba. An Extreme air.
Besides the point.
It leaks. A 2 1/2 gallon tank, 2 locker connects, a tire fillup connect and a gauge with the connecting parts all soft copper 3/8 inch tubing.
I will fill it up to 105 psi and it looses about 15 psi in 1/2 hour and will recycle the compressor without me using any air.
Can/t find the leak. I sprayed the connectors with soapy water and got no bubbles.
My thinking- the check valve is leaking. it is mounted close to the compressor and gets real hot. The check valve HAS to be as close to the compressor as it can...Right?
Do I go spending time and money on a 15psi leak in 1/2 hour?
There are even more...connections on it. It has a blow off valve, the check valve, the tank in/out, the manifold in and then it is distributed to the rest(plus the quick disconnect on the grill for tire airing). There are even places to connect things there is nothing connected, so a lot of opportunity to leak.
Sprayed the snot out it with soapy water though, and can find no leaks.
No big deal letting it recycle, only take 5 seconds, but it does recycle often.
As far ad tech/non tech... I am really asking where does a minor irritation become "crud now I need to pay attention to it"?
static pressure is static pressure, the check valve doesn't care where it is located it will read and respond to the same pressure in a closed system. Only reason you might want to locate it closer is you may get some head loss if you have a lot of skinny pipe between the valve and tank, then it might not dump as quickly but that is HIGHLY unlikely to be any issue.
We spend high $$$'s on our jeeps for (put your reason here). I get the heebie jeebies every time I see a Jeep on cinder blocks. Cinder blocks are made of fly ash or bottom ash and are as weak as can be. Please, get some off-cut railway ties or 4x4's, 4x6's. You can get a railway tie for around $10. Buy one and cut it up for solid support when needed.
