Hooking up ARB tire deflator kit inline with a compressor?

    Probably a stupid question, buts it's tacomaworld...it's full of them.

    I've seen the ARB tire deflator kit but does that gauge allow you to hook it up inline with a compressor so I can see what the PSI is at as I refill my tires?

    Specifically: does the gauge allow me to deflate and inflate while seeing the PSI?

    You are looking to do the military style inflate/deflate from the cab, right?

    From what I have seen the ARB does not do this in the kit available on a mass scale.

    I would see about contacting ARB and inquiring if they could do a special kit or instruct you on how to make theirs work the way you want.

    I'm just trying to use the psi gauge for both inflate and deflate readings but I'm thinking it's only good for deflating. Would have to get a separate gauge to attach to the end of my hose for pressure readings while inflating.

    I have one in the garage that I picked up about 6 months ago that allows me to inflate and deflate while giving instant readings but don't like it at all.

    Would an inflator with gauge that has a pressure relief button work? Don't really care about how long it takes to air down

    I was looking at a similar product. But like I said the one I'm seeing has a button to release pressure which I think will work.

    No, if you don’t have it connected to a compressor it is just an open pipe.

    It should, although that's really only to release the internal pressure of the gauge and I bet that would be very painfully slow.

    I think I see what you guys are saying. Damn.
    Looks like I'll just need a separate thing for inflate and deflate.

    Thanks

    Check out the auto deflator caps I
    Linked (but you can also find cheaper ones - ARB has them too).

    Pressure does not work that way lol.
    Boyle's Law says P1V1=P2V2, where P=pressure and V=volume. One side is the compressor and the other side is the tire. Well, volume is different so the only way to satisfy the equation is with pressure. What this means one side has to have a higher pressure. If you had a gauge in the middle you would see a meaningless pressure as the tire was being inflated. Now, if you buy an inflator gauge, you have to stop inflating and then you can see the tire pressure.

    Further complicating things is the Ideal Gas Law of ((P1V1)/T1)=((P2V2)/T2) where T=temperature.

    Not a stupid question. Just requires the right answer. There's a reason "psi" in in my screen name. ;)
