Air bag reducer bushing


Recommended Posts

We have a 2007 Monaco Dynasty Countess 3 and want to change the rear air bags.  We have Contitech 9 9 -12 and have ordered the replacements.  We need the 3/4 to 1/4 push on air fitting reducer bushing.

We have tried Napa but they don’t stock any and said they can’t order it.

The picture shows my existing bushing that I will need to replace.  Does anyone know where I can order replacements?  

I will appreciate help!

George

You will probably just re-use the bushing since they require a 1 1/4" hole and Monaco supplied a 1 1/8" hole so you have to remove the bushing (1 1/8" Socket) to get the air spring out.  All you need to buy are the 1/4" elbows since the easiest way to remove them is by snapping them off on some locations ( thank you HockeyDiesel) or just removing them on accessible locations.

I used a 1 1/4" wrench and a crescent to remove the air line nut and 3/4" socket to remove the air spring nuts.

If I buy the elbows do you think I steel need to buy 1/4 inch push on hose fitting?

I like them, 1/4" 90° push on fittings.  It's one piece not an elbow and a fitting.

Air Springs Conti Tech 99-12P 730 (AS8897) (64664)
Removal:
1 ¼” wrench & Large Crescent - remove air nut first
Break off the 90° 1/4" fittings not easily reached with a wrench
1 1/8” Socket & Flex ratchet – remove 3/4" bushing (bushing will not fit through the 1 1/8” hole)
¾” Socket – remove two upper and two lower nuts last & remove bag
Use extractor to remove broken fitting piece from bushing
Stubby 1/2" pneumatic impact wrench helps

Drill hole to at least 1 ¼” and bushing won’t have to be removed next time

Generally any hardware store.  You should be able to re-use those bushings though.  You will need the 1/4" elbows from NAPA, any truck store, Parker store etc. similar to these 1/4" NPT elbow to 1/4" tube
