Popular Post fjh Posted January 24, 2021 Popular Post Share Posted January 24, 2021 (edited) So We received a New Anthem to PDI this Week, So while doing the check over We notice ! Hey!They have removed the Air governor It is no longer on the fire wall were they have been mounted for the last 20 years! Hmmm, went on the the search for the little guy! Yup no where to be found , so we had the parts guy look up the air drier as this seemed to be the only place it could be . Sure enough the governor Is Now built into the Air Drier ! Grrrrreat ! Now when you have issues with compressor build and the like, there is now no cheap way to check anything !We looked at the price for this fine piece of equipment ! Only 1700 dollars !The cartridge A bargain At 300 bucks Never priced the Little governor piece However you can bet It will be Cheap🤑 and easy to find😨! Makes me wonder Why We have to over complicate the simple ! That being said It Likely comes down to captivation or The Fact the air on these newer units need Air to be dri to run the M trans and And the emissions components, this unit may be more efficient in someones mind ! However I can't see the savings in removing a ten dollar valve and 8 feet of plastic tube and replacing it with a 1700 dollar piece of crap that will likely Fail in three years Cause no one can afford the cartridge every year! Again I don't no the specifics on this unit It may be the best thing since sliced bread when dring air, However guess its going to be tested on our next truck sale! Still looking on the internet to see which company is selling this unit. and what Its selling features are compared to the older wabco or bendix units! will post it when I find it! SO I managed to find this unit it is called a SYSTEM SAVER HP AIR DRYER Didn't realize there were others out there, possibly worse. possibly better who knows anyway We will see how resilient it is in a couple of years!
