Are 3Z170B Pumps interchangeable with 3Z180?

HI Bill,


My 3Z180 pump needs a rebuild. I found a 3Z170B 2-3HP Compressor Pump Motor for sale.

While my 3z180 is being rebuilt I want to substitute the 3z170B.

Can I sub a 3z170B for a 3Z180?

Eric

In a ballpark sort of way, yes.

Check your sheave sizes to make sure you don't over drive it.

Depending, it may be a drop in.
