8V92 Air Dryer
#1
Fellow Gurus:

Please help me help a friend with an answer to his question.

Question today is a older newell with a 8V92 has a model 68 air dryer that is no longer available...what is the preferred choice replacement?

Thanks - Russ

I believe Jon (77Newell) replaced his with a newer model. Hopefully he'll jump in soon.

Jon changed their Brakemaster CR 68 to a Bendix AD-9. in Forest and Cindy's coach...search for an earlier post from Jon. Also

Found new, not remanufactured, here:

and spec sheet for size here:

And http://www.bendix.com/en/servicessupport...arch_1.jsp

Good luck, Lynn from Lynn/Jeff

there are rebuild kits available at fleetpride. at least there were a few years ago. much cheaper and easier.

think it was like 30 bucks and was easy to do. i did it on my 90

but it was quite a while ago

you might check into it. they do work ok

The 77 coach had no dryer when I bought the coach. Following a scary episode on slippery roads with suspected ice in the air brake system I went with the AD-9 for reasons too distant to remember.

When I acquired Forest's 93 coach I found water in the service tank downstream of the Brakemaster dryer, ergo the switch to the proven, by my personal experience, AD-9. I have since found no moisture in the tanks. Yes, the AD-9 does require an element change every few years, but at about $65 it's cheap compared to what can happen with iced brakes.
