My buddy and I pull the tank and compressor in the toolbox and made a whole for a air line to go up to the airhorn behind the grill through the frame to hide it.
From there we got stuck with all the wiring stuff, are we suppose to run a set of wires to the air horn as well? It has a 12v with cables, or can we run it from the stock horn?
Not sure if the horn with work like that also or if it only will work with the compressor, because if so I could have a low ton plus a higher ton when I press the switch that I bought to put in the dash.
The issue is with the cluster that shows the levels of compression, how do I hook that up? Do I need to run 2 air lines to that as well.
I found this thread on another forum with a similar thing but it doesn't help me much with what I need: http://www.ttora.com/forum/showthread.php?t=145784
*First time air horn install for me*
It is possible for you to run a wire from your horn to the power wire of the solenoid valve on the Air Horn so that your horn acts as the switch. Now the air horn will only run off the air so there is no real way to have a low and high tone. You may be able to try using different size airlines to try to get different tones, but then you would have to run more solenoid valves, switches, etc..
Ok so this is how it should be wired..
1) Mount the compressor (Where ever you would like, preferably a cooler spot though)
2) Mount the Tank (Where ever you would like) and thread in the pressure switch to the air tank
3) Mount the Air Horns (Where ever you would like)
4) Run a 12v fused power from the battery to the 30 prong on the relay
5) Ground the 85 prong of the relay
6) Run a wire from the 87 prong of the relay to the power wire(Red) of the compressor and then ground the compressor(Black wire)
7) Run a wire from the 86 prong on the relay to one side of the pressure switch and run a 12v power source to the other side of the pressure switch.
*** I recommend running the power from a 12volt ignition so if you have a small leak and lose pressure when truck is off your compressor wont go on all night and kill your battery.
8) Now you are going to run a wire from a 12v power source to the switch and then run another wire from the other terminal of the switch to the power wire on the Air Horn solenoid valve. Lastly you are going to ground the other wire of the solenoid valve. The two wires on the valve should be red and black even though it should work wired up either way. If not wire up one way but donít solder till you test when done with install. If it doesnít work switch the two wires.
***Now it looks like the gauge panel you got with the kit has a rocker switch on it next to the gauge but I would probably just run a pin switch somewhere else if you want.
9) Lastly hook up all your fittings accordingly and make sure to use TEFLON and wrap it the correct way or you will get leaks. Then you are going to run airline from the tank to the air gauge (The smaller airline if supplied). Then run airline from the air tank to the solenoid valve of the Air Horns. Also donít forget to hook up the steel braided line from the compressor to the tank.
*** I would also recommend running a water trap right before the steel braided line goes into the tank.
*** Also if the gauge has an input and output you may have to run a line form the tank to the gauge as normal, then run the line from the other port of the gauge to the air horn instead of from the tank to the air horn.
10) Make sure you drain the air tank on a regular basis depending on how much you use it and how often the compressor kicks on.
Hopes this helps!!
