the thing with the red lever is a blowgun. it is used for blowing things off with an air compressor. you disasemble the valve completely so you only have the top piece. then you drill a 1/2 inch hole in the center. thread in a 1/4 inch male thread hose barb. then re assemble the valve exactly how it was. attach a hose to the hose barb in the top ysing small SS hose clamps. then attach another hose barb to the other end of the hose using the same meathos as before. then using teflon tape thread the barb into the blowgun.
