I used some sears parts

I used a searspartsdirect.com. I found a similar compressor using the A00723 valve; A00724 Flapper; CAC-294 Plate - I think this is the flapper valve restrictor to prevent over flapping. Do not buy the gaskets, since they are not the same shape. The rings look to be the same size as my Melben Products Co. 501601

If C-H can't help take a look at "I made my own reed valve!" referred to in a few places on the site map on this site.

OEM parts will not likely be available.

Melben was acquired by Campbell Hausfeld back in the early 1960's, so if you contact them they may be able to direct you to a comparable product.
