Trying to remove the fan to clean the brushes and change the capacitor. 919.166442 ,1.5 hp, 15 gal.
Afraid of boogering up the fan trying to remove it.
I believe the start capacitor is failing, because there was a burning smell and the compressor won't start without a nudge.
what size hose can i use?
I want to change from the yellow coiled hose that cam with this model, Craftsman 921.153101. What size black rubber hose can I use?
Jerry, fill your boots! Use any size hose that you want and that you can get the fittings for.
A bigger hose takes longer to fill from the tank, yet it also means that you have more air to use right at the tool.
I have a small DIY air compressor at home too, and it originally came with a 1/4" vinyl hose. Not only was the vinyl a pain when it got cool (wouldn't bend, wouldn't lay flat etc.), it didn't transmit enough air for my liking. So, I have a 1/2" I.D. (hose is measured on the I.D.) rubber hose. It's easily handled even when cold and flows a lot more compressed air.
