nut

You can, but I prefer to use an impact tool - gently - meaning let it bang it at low force til it breaks loose.

But first, are you sure you are turning it the right way? Some of these are left hand thread.

Removing the counter weights
by: Pete

Bill,
I was removing the counterweights to use the motor with a belt driven pump....how is the offset shaft mounted to main shaft? There is a little grind mark in the center of the main shaft? Any ideas? I need to remove it to add a pulley.

Pump for a 919.165600
by: Bill

No luck in finding an exact replacement pump, but lots of sites have spare parts for this compressor.

Since this is a 6.5 HP twin cylinder pump, if you use your browser to search for a replacement pump for a motor this size, you will find some, as I just did. Or simply put compressor pumps in the browser and find a selection that way. Find one that's close to the 6.5 HP rating yours is and away you go.

Nope, not a direct replacement, so you will have to modify the mounting I would expect.

I've been searching the net for a manual and/or parts to an old craftsman 2 HP, 12 Gal air compressor system. This was given to me by my brother. I want to ensure it operates correctly, and want to replace some parts if needed.

So far, I have not been able to find anything with this model number 919-176821.

Any ideas? Is there a newer model manual that may apply to this compressor?

I appreciate any help you can provide.

Re: user manual for Air Compressor
by: Larry

Yes, I found the manual listed, with part number, but it states "this part no longer available".

Most parts listed for this model show the same thing.

One of the things I was trying to determine was the type of oil the compressor uses.

I appreciate your time and feedback.

Go to sears.com and look in parts and put in the model number and they list the manual there for about $6 bucks.
Hope this helps

Seperating Craftsman tank from compressor

by Brian
(Tampa )

I have a craftsman oil-less 60 gallon compressor and I am looking to separate the compressor from the tank due to space issues.

I would like to place the tank in the attic and fabricate a custom shelf for the compressor to be placed within the garage.

I want to keep the compressor in the garage due to heat issues and I also believe it would be safer.

I'm sure this has been done before, the plumbing seems easy enough, and I feel that I can get the tank in the attic, just wondering if I am missing something.

I have 220 in the attic.

Not sure about what is needed to extend the hardware that is on the actual top end of the vertical tank, and should I modify anything for better use... I plan on installing an auto drain, or extending the manual drain if I cannot locate a good place for the auto drain to empty.

Drop leg
by: Bill

Very good point, Doug.

There will be condensate for sure, and it could be lots, depending on the level of use of the compressor.

See the plumbing pages on this site for more info on drop legs and how they are used.

remote tank
by: Doug in s.d.ca

Do you expect the tank to be directly (more or less) straight up from the compressor?

If so, then there is the likely issue of condensation in the line between tank and compressor. Whatever the nature of the run, it will act like a cooler, and there will be some moisture trying to fall down into the compressor.

So, I'd be sure to put some sort of drop leg in it, near the compressor, so that the feed line can be drained.

Relocate compressor tank on Craftsman
by: Bill

Brian, whether yours is a Craftsman compressor, or any other brand, all you are talking about is extending the supply line to the tank.

As long as the pressure switch can "read" the pressure in the tank and react to it, and as long as your PRV is working, having the tank elsewhere is no real problem.

See the page on adding a tank for some details.

A long line to the tank from the pump means some pressure loss, sure, meaning that the compressor will run longer to get the tank pressure up to cut out.

It also may mean some lag time as the tank pressure drops before the cut in occurs.

Yes, you need to make sure you drain the tank regularly, and an auto drain, voiding water and vapor outside of the attic is important.

You will also have some issue with temperature. In an unheated attic, your warm air flowing up from the compressor pump will rapidly cool, allowing a greater than normal condensing of water vapor into free water in the tank, so you have to get the water out. What happens if the auto-drain freezes open or shut? Consider this.

I'm not sure why having 240 volts in the attic is an issue, if the pump is in the garage?
