Yeah, as soon as I figure out which line is the return line, I'll
check that one out.

I sure as hell wouldn't pay stealership prices for a bomb anyway. 
What, like $400, right?  And, the thing works like it's supposed to. 
I guess the only bad thing would be some sort of need to brake, with
the engine off, before the thing came up to pressure.  It holds
pressure for at least an hour - I know that much.

LOL.  Yeah - if it's the check valve, I'll just replace the bomb when
it comes time for a nitrogen recharge anyway.  But it's good to know.
