Tire pressure guage
« on: February 14, 2020, 06:17:25 pm »
I bought this a few years ago
and figured it would last me the rest of my life.  I needed it to inflate the inner tires on a F350 dually.



It's "stuck" and lets air escape all the time.  I took it apart and don't see any obvious problem.

Can water in my air lines have caused the problem?
Is there a better brand out there?

I would be interested to know the answer to this myself.  I just bought one of these as an upgrade to the one I had.  Not had a chance to really use it yet.

Repair parts are available from Milton to rebuild these.  I thought it was one of the better names.

How many times have you dropped it and it hit a hard surface asphalt, concrete (distorts the housing causing internal parts to freeze) and water could be a problem (drain your compressor once 1 week for Ideal performance) I too thought Milton was a good brand....anyone who offer's rebuild part's is a quality supplier in my mind.....otherwise they become throw away's.
