    When I changed out the ball joints on the truck (SOW hauler) I really struggled with the old compressor I had as all the undercarriage bolts are a bugger to break loose.

    This prompted the purchase of a new unit:


    Got a great deal on this Unit and the color was right.

    Here in Canada we use Hockey pucks bolted to the feet:



    I ran hard lines (copper) so I could access all four corners of my property (and beyond) with any air tool I may need. These show the lines adjacent to the lift:





    We used the rubber insulated ‘brackets’ to damper any vibration:



    I installed a couple of reels as well as several Quick couplers:



    Santa brought me one for X-mas which was super of ‘ole Saint Nick’ even if he got the color wrong:





    Turned out good in my opinion and the new unit is a definite upgrade (even if it is much louder when running)

    Now I have officially run out of excuses and have to get the engine swap done on SOW but I should have an easier time completing this task with the all the upgrades!

    Parting/Glory shot of the completed Compressor install:

    Need to do the engine swap on the race car next. I guess I will start a new thread as the 'shop' is (almost=never) complete!
