I will not tell you a short story where a rookie Fire Engineer kinda slipped his wet boot off the clutch while just backing a fire engine into the fire station.  Snapped a companion flange right in half.  But what saved the rook from painful death was that 3 of the 8 bolts had already been cracked.  I can imagine a frozen Bus Conversion glued to the ice being much more tough.  Much more damage could have been done.  Yikes!  HB of CJ (old coot)

My AD2 stopped purging today.  The safety release valve was kicking out air.  I've rebuilt it less than 10k miles ago and I think its time to replace it.  I've got an Eagle Model 10 with a mechanical silver series 6v92.  I'm just wondering what's the best model to replace the old AD2 with.  And is it a simple disconnect the old drier and install the new or am I going to have to replace a bunch of parts and pieces....

Thanks guys.

Inside wear I would suspect toe out. No de-coupler grooves don't help but that usually causes outside wear too.

I run 12r22.5's on the front of my highway truck. Nobody makes a 12r with a decoupler so I get that kind of wear on the outside and some on the inside. Lucky to get 100,000 mi out of a set.

It's not king pins as that usually appears as several diagonal bands of wear across the face of the tire. Bad or loose wheel bearings can cause similar wear as king pins.

What size and brand of tire?

Unbolting the entire housing is what it looks like to me.  I was hoping there was some super secret that would make the project alot easier.
