Hey Guys,
For those of you with uncastrated vehicles...

I spent quite a bit of time trying to find a US source for some 6mm quick connects to make up an emergency recovery kit for my EAS. I found a quick and very reasonable source. Grainger.

Grainger Part numbers:
1WUP8, 6mm-1/8" NPTF Tubing Quick Connects, ~$14.00 for Bag of Qty 5
1KUH4, 1/8" NPTM Air Tank Valve, ~$4.00 ea

I also got some 6mm copper tubing and made some plugs (cheap but effective)

Total cost around $40.00, and I had it in a day. :thumb:

There is alot of diferent types of emergency get you home ideas out there..

Im glad you are not going to install the system as a fixture like I see so many do, more joins = more leaks.

I with you on the permanently installed backups. It's kinda like riding with training pants on... this way I've got wipes in my glove compartment if things get messy. :wink:

Unless you use that king of tees



I'm not running a permanent install on my own rig either but i some customers knows that the users of their range rover will be glad to find a permanent install on a sad day. We're not all mechanics

would you pull the airlines out of the valve block and attach one of your airfill valves to the end of the airline then?

Yes. This bypasses everything in the EAS system and will get you home as long as your airbags and feeder tubes are intact. You'd pull the airbag feed tubes from the control block and fit one of these to each. You'd need an air compressor (I carry a small 12V portable unit for tire adjustment) to individually pressurize each air bag. Probably be a good idea to deactivate the EAS system by pulling the relay, under the drivers (NAS) seat, at the same time.
