Just sayin' , you already got 8 valves. I have all of the fittings to do this with 3/8" valves.

Wow. I never thought about doing it like this. I'm really glad you showed me that picture. Id like to do mine with 1/2 inch valves but its all the same. And would it slow it down by having all of them feed off the same line? I could always run one for the fronts and one for the backs. You really got my head turning now I gotta go get some pen n paper haha

you can set it up to run a feed line on both sides rather then just one.
1/2 valves are fast , 3/8s valves aren't to far behind in speed .

1/2 valve = 5/8 inner orifice , so 5/8 line is like perfect but way less common an hard to find fittings for locally. Stupid fast.

1/2 valve w/ 1/2 = very good , still super fast.


3/8 valve has 1/2 inner orifice so it is optimal an still damn fast.


I have fittings for 3/8s valves but wouldn't mind running 1/4 valves with 3/8s line.

Hrmm Id avoid home depot if you can . The fittings are not DOT approved.

BUT THAT ISN'T SAYING YOU CANNOT RUN THEM.

Just DOT's are more durable an will have the markings IF you were ever to get pulled by that one asshole cops who actually knows about DOT air brake fittings.

You can get DOT approved fittings from Deland truck center for pretty much same prices as Home depot fittings also.

Also ACE have brass fittings that are better then Homedepot ,better quality that is where I get fittings from when I can not make it to Deland.

Some of the Tee's also have Dot stamps on them , for some reason.

You can run HD fittings without issues , not saying that at all . A SHITLOAD of trucks do.

They're just weaker over all then DOT fittings lol.
Deland was a good bit cheaper then amazon last time I recall.
