There are still a few on ebay. Just not as cheap as they were. They can be bought thru truckpro as wellWhere did you get this from sir?? I was going to order one off Ebay, but the seller who had them sold out before I could!
In defense of the original dryers, they work. You just have to service them. Some of our trucks are 25 years old or more and probably have not had the air dryer serviced but a few times in their lives. Once we new owners actually service them, they are good for a long time.
Being coalescing type filters, they will get some nasty looking stuff in them. The newer dryers have the advantage of ease of service, just swap the cartridge, and you don't have to cringe at what you see inside.
Suggestion, if none of the tanks have water in them when you drain them, and the air dryer discharges it's load of gunk occasionally(messing up your driveway, etc) then all is well.
IMHO, much of the drive toward the new dryers results from surplus air dryer inventory needing to be sold by our vendors.
Strange, my MTVR has dual driers and one is like the lmtv one and the other is with a cartridge, I was able to rebuild both at the rally when I began having purge issues and the LMTV style was easy to pull the bottom off ofThe old one you have to totally remove from truck to service
The new one can be serviced completely without having to remove it.
