Installing Sanborn 5hp components on a Craftsman 919 tank

by Trent Brennen
(Tulsa OK)

My Sanborn tank rusted at the bottom of the tank,


I purchased a Craftsman model 919.166600 60 gal tank.

The tanks have different bung configuration. I'm cutting off the bracket from the Sanborn (the one that the motor and comp mount on)to mount on the Craftsman tank.

I am not sure what the best/proper plumbing should be. I do not have reference pictures yet but I will get them.

Not knowing what Sanborn components you have, we'll have to wait for pix.

(When you have photos, start a new thread, upload up to 4 photos, and in the text cross reference to this one. We'll move the photos. - Moderator)
