    Thanks for the link, lots of good info there.

    I see a potential problem. I picked up a used Viair 400c and I am changing it to be portable instead of mounted. I won't be using a tank and instead of a pressure gauge mounted on the pump I thought I could get away with a gauge mounted on the chuck, like the ARB. The ones I'm looking at have a trigger on them that needs to be held for air to pass through the chuck.

    This means I have a closed system with a volume limited to the hose when it's hooked up and I turn the pump on I will have a limited time to move to the chuck and hold the valve on. Every time I release the trigger to check the pressure or to shut the pump off I will be creating a closed system again. I don't think that's a good idea. How should I address this?

    Use open flow clip on chucks like these and then get a separate air gauge. Then you won’t have to sit there and hold the trigger. Just clip it on and relax.
