Re: Replacing Air Compressor Motor and Pump



Thanks for posting the question, I'm looking forward to reading the responses, I'm also considering a new compressor.

If you have the room it is nice to keep the old compressor tank piped into the air system, it will reduce cycling on the new one and give you a lot of air reserve.

I have looked at the compressors at Tractor Supply and also at this site:

My 5+ year old 60gal Craftsman oilless air compressor pump has thrown three set of rods in quick order (why?). Sears replacement pump/motor combo seems too expensive. 

So, I am looking for a source for a separate pump and compressor to retrofit to the tank. This is for my home garage. Mostly, the heaviest load I use it for are impact wrenches but I do have a sandblaster. I'm thinking 10 cfm at 90 psi will be enough.

I'm leery of Harbor Freight and was thinking of Northern Tools or Grainger

Any suggestions and pointers would be very much appreciated.
