I got a 25ft length of Goodyear 1/2 hose for $15 bucks from horror freight. Bought 4 glad hands from Peterbuilt of Cincinnati. I put 2 glad hands on the hose. One glad hand on my 1" drive impact gun, and the last glad hand got a standard air hose chuck. Now I have high volume for my impact gun, or I hook up the adapter gland hand to run anything else.

I have probably an easy problem to solve, but I don't know how to do it. I was trying to do this with my Deuce. Well, I got the gladhand, air hose and adapters all ready to go. I hooked it up to my driver side gladhand and turned the valve on and got nothing. Tried the valve the other way, just to check, and still nothing. My passenger side has pressure when turned on, but the gladhand is broken off on that side and I haven't replaced it yet. Any ideas?

Correct me if Im wrong but the drivers side is the service Brake ant the passanger side is the E-brake. The passanger side should have air all the time the drivers side should have air when you hit the brakes

Thanks, I knew there was something I was missing. I figured I'd ask here before trying to "troubleshoot" a problem which I now know to be non-existant, lol. Now, I have to get to replairing that pass. side gladhand.
