'98 TC2000 RE, air brakes. I understand (according to the build sheet) the bus takes a 9 1/2 inch tank (bracket mount.)

Am I okay to use this replacement tank from NAPA? http://www.napaonline.com/Catalog/CatalogItemDetail.aspx?R=MBI19842_0006425275

If not, can someone please point me to the right size and/or capacity?

Thanks

As long as the fittings are in the right place for you, why not?

If it doesn't fit, FORCE it.
If it breaks, well, it needed replacing anyway.

I agree with above^^^ as long as it similar (dia and length)cu in, plumbing will work and number of compartments. if cost is less I would.
Is the original a single, double or triple compartment tank?
