Bambi BB50D - Hot Motor Casing
by Jonathan Astley
I have been given a Bambi BB50D compressor which was faulty (the motors never switched off as it didn't reach the required pressure).
I have replaced the gaskets in one motor and after firing up it runs perfectly and when it gets to 120 it cuts out.
My question though is that the motor I have changed the gaskets in is cool to the touch but the other motor case is really hot.
Could this also be a blown gasket or something else? Any advise or tips on where to look would be much appreciated.
