I took the BoggsMobile to Altus, Oklahoma (About 15 miles from where I am) today and had the air line fixed.
The plan was to use the reusable fitting that Bob sent and either use a union and another reusable fitting to couple where the hole was OR come out of the compressor with a longer pipe and connect to it. Turns out he did neither. The air line was previously was routed under and hard against two ground wires and moving it above them gave us plenty of slack as Bob and others thought it would.
By doing that and using an Aeroquip reusable fitting the mechanic was able to hook directily to the elbow coming out of the compressor. The female end on the Aeroquip fitting screwed directly on the to existing fitting. It was perfect.
The old fitting. The hole where the new fitting was installed is about 4-6 inches from this fitting.
New fitting hooked to the compressor...
The air line was routed under these two ground cables and you can see where it rubbed. The "stuff" you can see is actually from the plastic wrapping around the ground cables and the air line appears to be in good shape. I may wrap some of the air line with rubber heater hose in places where it comes any where near other lines and hoses.
While this fixed my air leak I believe I may have other leaks. Tomorrow is a travel day so next week if it is not too cold in Missouri I will investigate and perhaps be back with more questions.
Thank you all so much. robertglines1 (Bob) went way beyond the call of duty and to you sir I give double honor! Thank you very, very much.
