Bostitch CAP 1512 air compressor

Hi Bill,

I have a Bostitch CAP 1512 that broke a belt. (It may have been due to exceeding the 50% duty cycle.) The belt was melted by the small pulley.

How do I disassemble the fan, crank, etc. to put the new belt on?

Thanks,
Charles

Looks like you only (maybe) need to undo the Torx screw in the crank to get the fan off, then gently pry the belt into position, like you'd do with a bike chain.

Bostitch 2040 OP needs an electric motor

by Arthur Goulllianni

Hi my Bostitch 2040 OP needs an electric motor. My compressor wasn't building enough pressure.

Found one of the head bolts was loose ,finally after looking so long to find the problem. The compressor would take a long time to build pressure . After tightening all the head bolts it became normal again.

A few months after the electric motor stopped working. Needed to get some brushes , couldn't find any. Called Stanley/Bostitch they said I need to buy the Pump Assembly with the electric motor as a complete unit.. Where can I find just the electric motor or parts for a motor?

Same issue
by: Ken

Model: CAP2040P-0F

Appears both my brushes cracked/broke in half.

Went to local Stanley/Bostitch dealer/repair, same answer, buy the pump & motor unit, cost, more then a new compressor at Lowes.

Appears to be about 7/16" in width, 1/2" in length, attached copper wire 1 15/16" long, connector slide on clip, little more than 3/16" wide X 7/16"long.

I'm far from being described as a mechanic/repair man, but after removing these brushes, it appears even I could replace if I could just get my hands on some.

Anyone?

motor brushes
by: Doug in s.d.ca

Unfortunately, there's a gazillion different brushes out there - can you find any numbers on the motor proper? Failing that, pix and dimensions of the brushes?

Also, is that model# right? I see OF models, but not OP.

Rislan tube attachment to unloader

by Charlie
(Chelmsford, MA)

I have a Bostitch 2060 compressor. I am replacing the pressure switch and need to disconnect the Rislan tube from the old switch and attach it to the new switch. Is this simply a press fit, cut the old tube and insert in the new switch or am I missing something. I would like to have an idea before I try to remove with any force

Glad to have helped. Cutting a new end makes good sense. Have a good one, Charlie.

Thanks Bill, it worked just like you said. I did cut the end off that had been in the old unloader fitting so there would be a clean un crimped / pressed end for the new fitting. Everything is back together. The compressor works like a charm and no leaks.
Thank you!

It would help to know for sure if the current pressure switch is branded as Bostitch, or is it a different brand, and if different, what is the brand and model number of the switch?

From images I've been able to find online, if the switches I saw on the Bostitch are the one you have, then I believe the unloader line enters an instant fitting in the switch. The tube is inserted into it.

You should be able to depress the collet around where the tube enters the fitting on the pressure switch, push the tube further into the fitting a bit, ensure that the collet is completely depressed, and then pull out on the tube.

____________________
Claudia, if you are saying that the intake of the air compressor isn't pulling air in, and there is no air pressure being generated in the tank when the compressor is running, I don't believe you have a compressor fan issue.

Please see the troubleshooting page on why air compressors run but don't build pressure for details about possible causes.

If I have misunderstood your original post, please update me by adding a comment here.

Cheers,

Bill
