    Hi garybrook

    No problem stealing the thread,I'm glad I'm not the only one having on going problems. The reason I've rebuilt my compressor 4 times is that it's over working it's always trying to find a height. Ive rebuilt and replaced the valve block and it doesn't help. I usually just disconnected if I'm four-wheel driving .the compressor gets real hot I think this is normal.

    FWIW.

    When pumping air a compressor will naturally get hot ( it is something to do with the physics of air & compression) & is the main reason you cannot use a small refrigeration compressor as an air pump because the heat is such the the flapper valves soften &/or distort. Many have tried & failed.

    Just to update this saga, the new compressor arrived and I installed it late last week. The 'blue' hose from the compressor to the valve body didn't match exactly, but when I swapped the original hose to the new compressor fitted and everything worked like new. I got good pressure/volume, still a bit warm when filling the tank but stopped and started when it needed to. All of the error messages on the dash cleared straight away, but I still had an unknown error fail message on my Nanocom EVO EAS screen, so I don't know what it was telling me.

    I haven't pulled the new compressor down to check the components but .... Enough! ... until I repair the brushes/cables and test the old compressor back in the car again, which I'll keep the old one as a spare. The new compressor looks like a dead copy of the Dunlop originals, but there was papers in the box - which is still in the garage - that shows who the maker was (China/HK) and who the NSW supplier I bought from via Ebay, so I'll record the warranty details if anyone else is interested, or if my experience of the compressor if it fails this year or so.

    I said I would record the purchase of the compressor I bought. The compressor was made by MaxspeedingRODS (or Maxpeedingrods - Performance Auto Parts, Tuning car parts and Engine Accessories Online - without the first s) in China and sold by autopapa-au in Regents Park, NSW for $300AUD. They papers in the box say there compressor is a replacement for the (AP-O)ANR3731, and it sure looks that it is. The part number seems to be S500072000173218099. The warranty notice says nothing about the time, i.e 12 months or so, but it says if you have any problems you should contact them at sales@maxspeedingrods.com and they would respond within 48 hours. We'll see.

    Gary thanks for the recommendation. I followed your link and went to the US site, selected Australia delivery and Australian dollars (but didnít select the Australian flag). I googled a discount code (HONEY6) for an extra 6% off and it has ordered for me for $233.82 delivered

    it was already on special. If I Picked the Aussie flag it was $100 odd more

    Well that's interesting. I thought their site was in USD with GST to add, regardless with the shipping being free. I bought my compressor from Ebay so .... Good for you. Let us know how you go with installing it in your car as the blue line couldn't fit in to mine, but I could swap the line from the older compressor and that was fine. I taped the brass adapter with gas tape (thicker, pink), not just air (thin, white) as the line couldn't seal fully until I swapped the tapes, which was fine then.

    If you haven't come across it previously, you might try this free app: Range Rover - EAS - Reset download | SourceForge.net for setting sensor heights, finding EAS faults etc
    Needs Microsoft ...excellent excuse for re-purposing an old XP-based laptop! you also need to make up a simple cable with a OBD2 to serial interface...(Jaycar for the bits)
    It's straight forward and easy to use. All details on the sourceforge website

    I had that on my old O2 Xda Windows Mobile PDA phone that had a real serial port. I had another I lost getting out of RRToadhall's car near John Brabyn's place near San Fran (John ran RangeRovers.net back then - RRToadhall and I were RRNET Admins on our way to John's.)

    Hmm, I have an almost NOS Toshiba Windows Mobile PDA in the garage. I wonder if it could be repurposed.

    And Greg, how long is it since I visited you? (I just checked, Oct 2015.) I haven't seen you on here in a long time - a bit like Hoges. Good to see you both back.
