Question about Air Tools & Compressors
Oil in air discharge. Builds pressure fast but took off top plate revealing scored Cyls. .004 out of round.Wondering if a ball-hone & re-ring may cure. Or possibly new piston/rings & hone.
It is possible to hone the cylinders and replace the rings to save the pump but don't remove too much metal as there are no oversized rings available for this type of piston/cylinder set. Also make sure to find out what caused the scoring in the first place and remedy that or you'll be replacing the cylinders and pistons next time.
