Arb help?

So I started to install the compressor yesterday. But I have a few questions... First (shown in picture one) there is a the nozzle that pushes air through from the compressor to the line. The instructions say to get it finger tight and that's it. So I got it as tight as I could but it's still loose because the compressor gets in the way and won't let it go further. So is that tight enough or no? Next I had my arb in my diff for a few weeks now and I'm just now doing the line. I had about a 6 inch tube as a breath hole coming off the top of the diff. when I took it off yesterday, so I could run the actual air line, there was diff oil in the tube. Is that normal?

I can't see the pic, but I'm guessing you're talking about the plastic retaining nut on the solenoid. Finger tight is fine on that. As for diff oil in the air line, I've heard of people experiencing that. I've never checked mine, but I've read that people just drain the oil out of the line and hook it back up.

alright thanks. ill probably do a soap test on it once i finish hooking up the power. and so you don't think the oil in the line is bad? cuz i figured i could just flush the line every once in a while after I'm done driving it.

So which one is "hand tight"? The air connection or the black knob on the right?

the nozzle that hooks up to the compressor. well its not even hand tight i can't turn in anymore. the solenoid it good(i think thats what its called.. the piece with the orange cap is good. its the other side that just seems way loose but you can't make it tighter.)

Correct me of I'm wrong... The second note Is saying that I would add wire to side closest to the compressor? since the fuse is in the middle of the line.

Send a message via AIM to erickpl
if things are still loose when doing the hand tightening, I suspect one of the springs or valves inside that assembly are not lined up right. Open it up and ensure it is in there right. Call ARB's service dept - they're AWESOME and helping with that kind of stuff.
