Sourcing parts for Devilbiss Model 330
I have a devilbiss model 330 air compressor circa 1942. I would like to source parts for it, where should I look?
Howdy Larry, how's things out in Washington?
Two things come to mind about finding parts for an old Devilbiss air compressor.
Have a look at the Repairs page on this website and see if any of the repair depots are close enough for you to contact them.
Or, to quote their site, " DeVilbiss Air Power Company has over 2000 Authorized Warranty Service Centers throughout the United States and Canada that provide the highest possible level of customer service. Contact an Authorized Warranty Service Center to order parts, accessories, or for warranty repair work." So visit this page for Devilbiss

Help with identifying parts of a DeVilbiss Compressor (model # 230) (yes very old!)

I could not find my answers in your book, so I'm coming to the source.
I am restoring a 1952 DeVilbiss compressor that sits on a 60 gal horizontal tank.
On the head of the compressor there are four round caps, two large and two small. The two smaller caps have a tube connecting them to each other, then running off into space. My question is, what is their purpose and where should I attach the tube?
Also what lubrication/oil should I use for this compressor?
1) Thanks for buying my eBook
2) Reference the tubes, since I can't see them clearly in the photo I have, and since I know squat about this compressor (except generally), my thoughts are these might be the intake valves.
3) Regarding the oil, see my pages on Oil linked from the nav bar for as much info as I can provide, not having the original spec as to what oil they recommended
Excel Devilbiss problem - Crank seal continues to blow out as air is filling tank
7 HP 60 gallons. Crank seal continues to blow out as air is filling tank. Approximately at 60 psi. Could you say what may cause this. Please note oil in crankcase is filled up to threaded area on fill plug.
Too much oil? You mention the crankcase is filled with oil up to the threaded area on the fill plug.
Is there no fill dipstick or other indicator?
Try (this is just a guess) draining off half the oil and see what happens.
Good luck. Comments from tech type folks very welcome here.

A DeVilbiss Twin compressor pump ~ connect 1/8'' copper pipe
by R Fisk
I have assembled a compressor for DIY use, as follows
A 0.75hp motor
A 50 litre Ex 'Fiac' tank
A DeVilbiss compressor pump
Question...on the top of the compressor twin cylinder head is a 1/8'' copper pipe (to both cylinders) that I don't know where to connect it to or what it does. It's not an unloader, I have that fitted to my check-valve.
Sometimes twin cylinder compressor pumps have a line between cylinders with a check valve in them. Some have a check valve and PRV, some just have a PRV.
I don't know enough about the specific item to tell you for sure what the line does.
Your question is posted live, and perhaps someone out there with knowledge of this particular compressor can comment.
