Yep, that's what it is. Supplies air at a preset, constant pressure.

Marlboro....you are correct. I've got a buddy who's gonna take a look at it and see if we can get it running. I had heard of this type of machine before but never thought I'd own one. What I know of these is that it causes minimal over spray due to the absence of compressed air propelling the paint. This may be a game changer for my snowblower if I can get it running sooner than later.

I have a slew of parts hopefully on their way from Brian tomorrow, so I have a couple days to tinker with the Titan.

The blower goes into the shop (high school welding class) tomorrow so keep your fingers crossed all works out.

Hey, just spoke with a great rep over at Titan and she emailed me a pdf of the owner's manual for my unit. Just thought it would be interesting and/or useful for others if they too have the same unit as I do.

While I wait for my package of goodies from Brian and the snowcaster to return from the high school I've turned my attention to wiring my strobe and back-up (reverse) light. I'm looking for any pictures or ideas as to where and how you guys have mounted your strobes and reverse lights to your GT? Also, how have you opted to wire them into your system? Do you drill a hole in the dash plate? I'm visual so any pics would be great. Thanks.

LIGHTS...SPEAKER 777s! Thanks to coldone I have new to me lights for my CASE. I need to make or pick up 4 gaskets and I need to locate or fabricate 4 brackets to hold the lights in. Anyone ever made their own gaskets or brackets for 777s? Thanks.

Well, I popped the hood off today to clean and prep her for the install of the lights. When inspecting a bit further I found that two of the clips were still on the tractor so I at least have an example in my hand to either fabricate or know what to look for at the store for the other two. I was able to salvage one of the gaskets from one of the lights so I'll be able to use that as a template once I find gasket material.

GASKET......I'm attempting to make gaskets for my Speaker 777s. I found a multi-pack of gasket making materials but not sure if it will work. The packet has rubber and cork material. What is recommended? Does is need to be "shock" absorbing? Thanks.

The replacement gaskets are a cheap foam type gasket, I have several. It doesn't matter much what you use. I think whatever the packet has will be fine. I would choose something that would absorb viabration well and go slightly thicker, but it's not necessary. If it were me I'd go with the rubber.
It's coming along nicely!

Did you make your own or buy them? The one I salvaged off the light had like a tar consistency; I literally scraped it off the light with a razor blade.

While I wait for parts from Brian a buddy of mine and I worked on the Titan. We were able to get her running in fine fashion. I even had time to spruce her up a bit.

Now to find a gun that will go with the Titan. I found a few at Harbor Freight but don't know any of them will work.

Think it one of these will do the trick? Thanks for weighing in on the matter.

I bought mine. Someone had a pack of nos ones on ebay along time ago and I bought them.
