Air Leak

Recommended Posts

Hello all

     Today while i was hauling fill to a job site i noticed the air pressure gauge hovering around 70 psi and the red parking brake light came on. i pulled over and applied parking brake which allowed the tank to fill up over 110 psi. i released the parking brake and the tank dropped to just above 60 psi and wouldn't raise above that while driving. I limped home and now im wondering where to start. It seems the leak only happen when the parking brake is released. any ideas where to start?

raise box up, chock wheels so no roll, shut engine off and walk around truck, very possible the parking side of a brake can. Will only leak when brakes are released.      terry:MackLogo:
