The air receiver and discharge system
Section I. TROUBLESHOOTING PROCEDURES
The main problem with the air receiver and discharge system is air leakage. You can find leaks by putting soap solution
in the area of the suspected leak. If the leak can't be stopped by tightening fittings, replace the part. Use sealing tape on
pipe fittings to get a good seal. Do not use sealing tape on hose fittings which are self-sealing.
