Question about Craftsman 3 gal. Air Compressor, 1.5 hp, Horizontal k

Broken connecting rod

I have a 60 gallon 6 HP Craftsman compressor and one of the connecting rods broke. The parts catalog has the parts I need but my question has to do with the installation. Is there anything to do other than install a new piston and connecting rod, for example, is there any type of sealant or lubrication required?

Craftsman compressors come in two flavors, light duty dry lube system or the heavy duty oil crankcase type. If you have the dry lube, your repair kit will consist of a cylinder, and piston rod with a vinyl piston ring. You should replace both cylinders and both bearings. Be carefull not to let the cylinder heads come apart because the gaskets are expensive. Make sure to turn the pump by hand to make sure everything is installed correctly.
If you have the oil bath type of compressor, you can replace only one rod, however make sure that the rod journal is smooth. Most rod failures are due to lack of oil causing the rod to melt onto the journal. This metal must be removed before installing the new rod. Use light sand paper cut into long strips and pull across journal untill clean and smooth. Use compressor oil instead of motor oil for long compressor life. enjoy
