Water line

    Changing rad hoses and regulators notice a line running from regulators housing to compressor. Is this another type of line to replace? 2004 C-7

Is the line metal or is it a hose?

Journey, this line from engine air compressor in most case a rubber with single strand wire
( basic a single strand hyd hose with 2 JIC hyd fittings on each end.) Unless inspection of
hose is swelled or outer rubber peeling there is really no need to change out.
