    So after running Airlifts first gen Auto Pilot for 10 years I decided to upgrade to there 3H which is now there newest system. A call to a long time friend & one of by two build advisers ( was by contact at FBI),got an order placed & yesterday a trip up to his shop in Sacramento got the parts in my hands. A bonus was I found a new brewery right on his street, Glory. Great beer.
    So the into the next winter project I will dive! 1 (1).jpg 2.jpg 3.jpg 4.jpg

    Time for the winter work to begin! looks like some fun ahead of you.

    Were you having any issues with the old first gen system, or just time to modernize?

    The old system works fine, the ECU was replaced once & a few of the sensors, of which I have an extra one .
    The presser sensors are effected by air temp & humility, so someones sits wrong, I had installed a bubble float into the front part of the console & back lite it so could correct that problem. That system was around $800 & the 8 3/8 Asco nickle plated valves were $520, would like to sell all for $400 & there is a extra valve & parts, & din connectors. All working just fine.

    Today got the soft lines pulled to the rear, & made a mock mounting plate for the manifold.
    Had to change the way it mounts, angled is what I wanted,but to tight of a radius for the air lines. Going from 4 feeds to 4 manifolds, to 2 feeds to a tee to the manifold single feed. 1.jpg 2.jpg 3.jpg
    The mock up is 20 ga steel, the plate will be 18 0r 19 polished stainless

    Running the lines will be much cleaner with this manifold.

    Can you run 2 feeds directly into the manifold?

    Only one inlet feed, manifold has 5 feeds, LF/RF/LR/RR/T/E, but will use a tee from the 2 hard ines from the tanks.
    This manifold does make for less connections than running 4 manifolds.
