    Air Compressor Rebuild ??

    Gday All,

    Noticed my Hitachi compressor is started to run a bit longer than normal so I am going to pull it out and give it a once over. I have the new kit to do the air dryer but am wondering if others have done more than just change the disscasnt and the filters . Can anyone let me know where to get the other parts if required

    Cheers Ean

    These guys have kits to do full rebuilds and have videos to show how to do it.

    Gday Justin,

    For the cost of the parts I will give it a go. Nothing ventured nothing gained I guess.

    Of course. I don't do them anymore as it approaches an uneconomical level adding labour and having to be able to offer a warranty on the rrpair. Also have had a few with electric motor failures too that is really a throwaway.

    Hope it works out. Id be getting the full kit not just the drier refurbishment.

    Thanks Mate, yep I ordered the full kit and if I do it myself and it stuffs up then no one to blame but me. It hasn't thrown up any warnings yet but I just noticed today it ran just that little bit more than normal , and it is 10 yrs old so prolly due for a bit of attention. Once I strip it down if it looks to far gone I will just get a new one.

    Cheers Ean

    Recently did a full kit myself at home and spent more time getting the top bolt out and in than the whole rebuild process. So far so good.

    Slot the top hole in the bracket before refitting.

    Is it feasible to refurb the valve blocks. I have found an o ring kit for all 3 valve blocks sourced from USA

    Has anyone refurbed the blocks successfully and are kits available in Australia?

    After testing sag overnight with he #3 fuse pulled out the two front bags dropped equally 55mm the rear grew a few mm
    I believe this is probably caused by an internal leak in the front valve block, so Im thinking giving the valves a birthday could be worth a try
