I bet that little sucker is as handy as a pocket on a shirt.

 

Is that a b or c model cat?

i agree, nothing better than an air starter to make someone unexpectedly need to change their shorts.

Ditto on the air start.  Changed mine over a few years ago.  With new air parts it holds air for 6 months with no problem.  Installed an automatic oiler and now I don't have to worry about vanes drying up over winter.  I also added a dual pressure gauge so I can monitor the start tank pressure.

That is a D3B in the pic with the u model. And she is definitely handy!  Thank you all for the input. I'm still not sold on the air start but I love your ideas.

Check in with Geoff Weeks over on the Just Old Trucks website.. He has a couple of trucks with Air Start and swears by them...

My truck has air start...I love it. Saves a lot on batteries, and easier to jump start (if you got another truck or an air compressor).

It sounds like the air stater stays. I really need to stop a few air leaks !!
