Anyone got a new one they dont want/need?  Was going to just changed my filter but its almost 20 yrs old and new units are cheap enough.  Dont want to be marginal in cold country with this.

Mack truck dealers used to have re manufactured units available on sale at times. Might also try Ebay.

I've found some on various sites.  Just thought if someone here was trying to unload one, I'd rather buy from here than there.

Unless you have your heart set on a AD-9 Bendix drier there are other out there like the Hadex and Wabco direct replacements for the AD-9 and are superior to the Bendix  AD-9

Bendix AD-9 is the easiest to overhaul. The newer Bendix's are not rebuildable. They have a spin on filter the has to be changed yearly, or the unit will fail. I'll stick to my AD-9 (that are still available on new trucks). Good Luck, TomC
