Hello,


I inherited this old compressor and I'm fairly new with owning one, so please be nice :)

I need to replace a cracked plastic part for this compressor, but I don't have any idea about the make/model to start. The cracked part I need to replace is shown in the first picture.

What would be the name of that cracked part I need to replace? I would also be interested in tracking down the owner's manual as well.

I attached photos of the compressor and the motor plate information. There is a serial number on the tank, 12097-421582.

Is there some type of generic replacement if I can't find the original?

Thanks for any help!!!

Looks like it is a Manifold so you can plumb everything together.

From the pic, I don't know for sure. So let's run down most of the parts one normally expects to find on this type of machine to figure it out. If you don't know what the parts mentioned look like, just google it for some pix of what it might look like.

Almost always, there is a "Check Valve" near the tank that connects between the outlet tube from the pump and the tank. Usually, there's a small tube coming off the side, the "Unloader Port". Do you have that? Does the tube run to an "Unloader" on the "Pressure Switch" that's above the cracked part?

Also, usually on that cracked part, there is a "Pressure Relief Valve", but it may be located anywhere on/connected to the tank. Is there one?

Take a look, and tell what you find, and we can go from there.

Thanks.
