Push in Part# ***** says in the bulletin that 1/4" tubing and the adaptor\must be used on the exhaust line into the pneumatic harness.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
it looks like push in on one side and the other is like a screw in.
Technician: Wayne, Journeyman replied 1 year ago

Thank you for that

what seems to be the issue, wont go in

is there a plastic ring around the top of the fitting,

if yes you push down on that

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Push in is for the 1/4" tube and screw in suppose to go to a 3/8" tube I guess
Technician: Wayne, Journeyman replied 1 year ago

Hi

So you can not push it in ??

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I can push in on one side of the adaptor that has a quick connector but not on the other side.
Technician: Wayne, Journeyman replied 1 year ago

Hi

The other side is a screw in , you mentioned

Ask Your Own Medium and Heavy Trucks Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I looked again the other side is like a plastic tube but I'm not sure if it would fit in a 3/8" air tube.
Technician: Wayne, Journeyman replied 1 year ago

Hi

So you have a plastic tube sticking out the valve

and you need to install it to a 3/8 plastic line

that should be the exhaust port with the tube

Ask Your Own Medium and Heavy Trucks Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I will explain more.The old Trailer Valve had a 3/8" tube out of exhaust that was connected to the 3/8" connector of the Parking Valve exhaust.The new Trailer valve has 1/4" tube sticking out of exhaust and should be connected to the pneumatic harness which I presume is the exhaust from the Parking Brake Valve in the dash.
Technician: Wayne, Journeyman replied 1 year ago

Thank you for that

Ok, I knew it was the exhaust with the plastic tube

what you need is a air line coupler (union)

1/4 to 3/8, to join them

I hope this helped you

My name is ***** ***** I will assist you.

Do you have a picture of the whole back of the valve? I think the 1/4" you are referring to just goes to a hose you make and you stick it out of the firewall on the truck to exhaust out the air when you set the brakes so the valve can move. The newer valves exhaust out of the valve into the air and not into the old lines as before. You still have your air inlet in, the line to the tractor, the line to the trailer, but an additional exhaust port for the valve itself. I think that might be the valve that you have.

Ok it makes sense because there is no way to stick a hose into one end of the adaptor but the problem is what do I do with the black exhaust hose from the parking brake that supposed to go into the trailer valve.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I replaced the parking brake valve also because I thought I was loosing air there but actually I am loosing air at the trailer valve.
Technician: Jeremy, Certified Truck/Bus Technician replied 1 year ago

Those valves were updated on the new trucks and instead of the places making the old valve, they are forcing the older trucks that replae them to use the newer ones. They flow a bit different and that is why they added that exhaust valve on it. When I have to replace them on older rucks, they confuse me as well and I'll fight for hours until I remember that it just exhaust ports the valve itself and not the system like the older valve did.

If you get a hold of 1800airbrake and tell them what the valve is, they will tell you exactly what line to put where or send a diagram to you. I use them quite a bit. The service is 100% free to use and they know their air lines on every single truck on the road.

I have called Bendix as you suggested and they told me about the truck dash valve which I installed correctly but they didn't tell me about the trailer valve which is a Volvo part.I found a schematic from Volvo on how the tubes go between the truck and trailer valve and it shows that the supply line from the truck valve will have a T connector and a tube from the T will go to the supply at the trailer valve but now I don't know what am I going to to with the old supply line that was going to the trailer valve separately from the truck valve.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I have added the picture I found at Volvo for the valves.
