Rods are out at a machine shop across the state that pours babbit bearings. The crank will also get a polish while it's there.

Re-ringed the pistons and chased all the threads in the block yesterday.

Pistons are actually steel, not aluminum.

capacitors live a hard life and they all fail at some point. Only nice thing is that the capacitor motors are huge torque on startup, which means you can use a smaller electric motor on an equally sized compressor(less weight). Thankfully my electric motor doesn't have them, but it's also probably 200+ lbs of motor.

Might have my hands on another compressor that's even bigger. Only problem something is seized. Either the electric motor or the compressor itself. The guy at the machine shop wants to keep the tank, but said i could have the compressor and motor.

I wasn't going to argue with free.

It makes my compressor look tiny, which is sort of scary. triple V belt driven, so it flows some serious air. Hopefully it's not a fatal problem(broken rod, piston, etc).

If he was serious perhaps i'll be able to get it in 2-3 weeks when my connecting rods are good to go.

Still waiting on parts from machine shop. Another week maybe 2.

The tools to rebuild the cylinder head showed up yesterday. $20 a piece x 4 tools.

I go to use the first one, and snap. Tool fails. WTF!?!

Called the company i bought them from. Every single one they had in stock broke the same way when they tested them. Quality control problem, bad batch.

Now the kicker. I'm looking 2-3 months before i may be able to get a replacement, and that's if they even decide to make more of them due to low demands of the tools.

The other 3 tools worked fine, and i was able to rebuild 1/2 the valves in the head.

Going to see if i can redneck engineer the busted tool as it looks like i can drill out the busted pin and drive a roll pin into it's place. It only has to work 4 times(2 removals and 2 installs) and that's it.

This damn "free" compressor is really starting to not be worth the money. All said and done i'll be over $500 into this goddamn thing.

The motor on the "Freebe" might be 3 phase-- so it can handle the large compressor.

Chevy 6 cylinder used babbit bearingsand dippers, up to about 1950, and the early ones also had steel pistons.

Still no parts from the machine shop. Been almost 2 months now, if not more.

Went to a swap meet sunday and came home with a Kellogg American 325TV compressor pump for $175. A little cleaning and fresh oil and it runs really well. Problem is it's meant to have a 3 hp motor, mine is only 1 1/2 hp. I run it to ~120 psi and then shut it down manually as to not put too much load on the motor.

From what i've found out the tank blowoff/safety valve is rated at 200 psi. That would tell me that tank is at least rated for that, as the valve is original(both are kellogg blue).

The info i've found on line, what little there is anyways, says the cutout pressure should be 175 psi. mine cuts out at 150, but i suppose i can turn that up once i get the correct compressor re-installed after the rebuild.


In the process of running and sweating 1/2" copper pipe for air supply lines to the hose reels now. Hopefully i'm doing it correctly, because 175 psi isn't very forgiving if there's a bad sweat joint.

I hope that by now you've got your 320 back together. I'm heading out to pick one up today. My friend wants the tank and I want a smaller compressor head. I already have a '60's Kellogg American 331 but (a) it's a bit much to start that sucker off my generator and we lose power every time a fly farts on a power line in my neighborhood, and (b) since it's far more than I need, the oil almost instantly gets milky and it never gets hot enough to boil the moisture out. I'm pretty sure that the 320 is going to be able to run down to 350 rpm safely, so I'll set it up for low speed in hope that it will get warm enough filling my two 80 gal tanks. Its big brother can jump into the game when pressure drops below a certain threshold, and I might use a 3 phase motor and VFD to make it start on the generator and vary its speed based on demand for bonus points.

So can we get an update? It's only been 7 years.....

P.S. - your photos helped me identify the unit I'm getting. Thanks for that.
