Setup the regulator and was working on calibrating it to 95psi. Once I got it there, the twin arb cycled on and off every 2 seconds because there wasn't enough of an air reserve between the regulator and compressor to stop compressor air spikes from happening when the compressor was on.

So... 9pm...

Either move the regulator over to right before the manifold, and hope there is enough air reserve in 3.5ft of 3/8 ID hose... or dismount the compressor, take it apart and replace the pressure cutoff switch with the switch from my old compressor. Option 1 was 50/50 on working imo... Option 2 was 100% on working if my old switch worked (which it was when I dismounted the old compressor). Option 2 it is...

Took everything apart, installed the old switch, put everything back together, and at 10:30pm, everything finally worked as intended. 5 gallon air tank, twin arb, air coupler in the rear to air up, 2 up front, system shuts off at 90psi, lockers all work.

If you have a tank then one possible solution would be to feed your 95 psi regulator for your lockers with a line coming from the tank. That way you could run the higher pressure pressure switch on your compressor without it cycling on and off since the source for your lockers would be the reserve air pressure in your tank. And when the compressor cycles on to fill the tank it will shut off at 150 psi and it would not be effected by the lack of air capacity that you have with your existing set up. That way you will have all the benefits of the higher pressure twin for tires and air tools without blowing out your seals because they would be protected by the regulator.

I like this idea a lot. Once I get around to learning how to weld, and putting in a welder, i will have a major use to use air tools, then I will be doing it this way.

As it sits right now, I aired up my rig in about 5 minutes from 7psi to 30psi. It was awesome. I have a couple of things I want to change about it's current setup (one of the coupler fittings, and still need to run a line to the front bumper), but it is working great! I should be at the club meeting this month, so we can compare setups 😛
