Air Gauge - 2 tires bled or air up....

Here's a niffty little unit I made up about 15 years ago that allows 2 tires to be aired up or bled at the same time. The pic isn't great, but Pugrocker is stopping by tonight to replace a bad u-joint and is bringing his digital camera. We'll take some more pics then....
The setup has a low pressure gauge that is segregated by valve to protect it while airing up as well as a high pressure gauge. The hoses have clip on chucks and bleeding down is accomplished via a blow gun attachment. Mounted in the center is a schrader valve.
It works great and speeds bleeding/airing up quite a bit. Just thought I would share this with folks who might have missed it......

The equalization helped me out once when I picked up a nail and the tire was slowly going flat. I keep my spare overinflated and just connected the spare with the ailing tire. Got me home where I could safely repair the tire.

Re: Air Gauge - 2 tires bled or air up....

I have a similar item I made out of pieces and parts. They're invaluble for those running lockers and LSD's, you get equal pressure on both sides at once. I have seen the octopus, the 4 tire one, but it's kinda gomey and I run different pressure F/R anyway.

Definitely post some pics, I'm curious as to how it looks after such a long time and what you used to make it. Nice job!
