Thanks for the update. Bypass the air drier with a union to connect the lines for test purposes and also check the fittings/check valve going into the tank for restrictions and see if you might have water or ice in the system that has froze causing a restiction. You will need to disconnect the lines and fittings and look for restrictions. Let me know

I cannot hook up to air dryer because there is no check valve on the tank where the air dryer hook mounted the air dryer goes directly on this ar tanks not connected with no air lines
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
thats why I send you pictures of air dryer and air tank set up I assuming my check valve for his ad is setup air dryer is in side the tank
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
I meant to say air tank because there is no check mounted on external check valve for me to bypass air and hook compressor in directly on it
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
according to the dealing this set up where the air dryer is mount on tank is call primary number 2 .....the 2 port you see on the air tank and the 2 port on the air dryer line up together so how can I bypass air dryer to do this testing
