There is a another line of reciprocating and rotary screw compressors of the Champion brand offered by Sullair – Australia. They are manufactured in, and sold by, more than twenty distributors and branch locations throughout Australia to provide sales and after-sales support to customers.

They do state that their rotary screw compressors are made in Australia, but I was not able to definitely determine if their recip compressors were too. I have a sneaking suspicion (I hope I’m wrong) that their recips come from the orient, but I am not sure.

Looking for the crank to connecting rod specs on a R70A compressor any idea where to get this info or where I can get a manual ?

Princeton, Illinois 61356 USA

It’s get a 4 inch stroke, if that’s any help.

I’m looking for a rebuild kit for a champion vr5-12 compressor.


Rebuild kit for this compressor

Looking to identify and purchase parts to refurbish what i believe is a Champion 2 stage compressor. Thank you

Champion makes lots of different pumps.


Compressor is a CAW1 model made in 2008. Manual available at Quincy Illinois champion Denver Gardner location.

Yeah, looks like an older style vp60. Parts are available for the vp60, but not certain they fit this. Check with the specs attached, if they match up the current parts should fit.

Anybody have any info on a model S champion compressor? I cannot seem to find anything on.

I recently purchased a older Champion (Farm Master – model FM 5A) Serial # 190935 – I was wondering how old it was or how to date it. It seems as it has been neglected and I would like to restore it. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Hey, Travis, I have a Champion Farm Master from the 40’s. Works like new. Westinghouse motor. I start it up just let my friends listen to it click n pop. I can shoot you some pics if you like.

Feel free to post them here!

i have a model 5v any help on finding parts? looking for the ones on the pistons

champion compressor pump serial # R-15A 87K. compressor runs good till it builds pressure and shuts off then the air comes out where i have shown in the picture.. i think it should bleed a small amt of air for restart. but it will bleed off the whole tank. help i am lost. thank you steve.

Steve, if there’s a tank check valve, check that. I suspect it’s leaking.

where would that be. and thank you for the help

You are welcome.

Complete info here: Scroll down the page to the check valve page.

Change your intank check valve

You need to replace the check valve going into the tank . You may be able to remove the valve and disassemble it for a good cleaning .
