Re: Replacing Air Compressor Motor and Pump



I bought a compressor from Harbor Freight.  It is not an oil-less model and it is still very loud.  Also I have doubts as to whether it produces the advertised capacity as it won't even come close to keeping up with my diegrinder.  It also calls for 30 wt. non-detergent oil.  So in the winter I have to use a heat gun to warm it up as the oil is too thick and it won't start, just pops the breaker.  It also developed a leak in the pressure switch, which I repaired and has held so far.

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.
