Fixing up an old air compressor.

Here's a place for the group to discuss their other brands of bikes, hobbies, and personal interests not related to Ural & Dnepr Sidecar rigs. But not politics...

rebelrider,i was just thinking about this exploding thing,not sure if i personally would be worried think of the good fortune of getting a industrial strength air compressor. life is full of what of dangers, i mean most of my friends think im crazy to drive a Ural its dangerous they say, and what do i do i ride. i would say as to your compressor just use common sense and get it running and enjoy. just think how many millions of un maintained moisture filled compressors there must be, never heard of one blowing ,leaking maybe. IMHO of course! :cheers:

By hydrostatic I meant with water instead of air

Sorry to tell the truth, I skimmed over that part. Water is the way to go. I'm sure you know the pressure will change very quickly so use a hand pump or a controllable relief or you will just kill it without knowing what the pressure was.
I may not be good, but I'm slow.
