Need connecting rod for Sanborn type ''143'' air compressor pump
I need a connecting rod for my Sanborn type ''143'' air compressor pump. It seems it's an obsolete part as the Company was taken over by Coleman and the pump was manufactured by E.L. Smith (now Stellar Industries). The rod # is 047-0008. I am hoping that someone either has a NOS or used rod, but so far have been unable to locate one. Any ideas?

I just browsed the net and found several sites that sell coleman parts. Above is just one I copied and pasted. If your unit is older, if you know the type of pump you can search for that. eg. (debilvius) A lot of compressors have the same pump under a different name like Coleman, Sanborn etc. I have found some units that are just so old they are obsolete and parts just aren't available.Hope this helps. Good luck!
Leaking bleeder valve /unloader is caused by faulty check valve. Follow the air discharge hose from the pump head to the brass valve at the tank. The brass valve is the check valve designed to keep pressure in the tank and prevent air from loading the pump when the compressor is trying to start. Remove the discharge air tube at the check valve and test for leak. If leaking replace with generic valve available at www.grainger.com or on ebay. Good holidays
TO ME IT SOUNDS LIKE YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IS THE BELT. ITS INSIDE AND SURE ITS COLD BUT PROBABLY NOT THAT COLD. SPRAY CARB OR BRAKE CLEANER IN IT AND MIX WITH CHEAP OIL, RUN FOR SHORT PERIOD AND DRAIN. NOW PUT YOUR GOOD STUFF IN. VOLTAGE DROP CAN BE UP TO 10 V. READ VOLTAGE WHEN OFF AND WATCH IT WHEN IT COMES ON. MORE INTERESTED IN THE GAUGE OF POWER CORD. 15 AMPS ISNT ALOT AND A SHORT 12 GAUGE CORD SHOULD BE FINE. AMPS WILL PROBABLY SPIKE UP TO 40-50 DURING START-UP. THE AIR PRESSURE PUSHS ON A DIAPHRAGM WHICH LIFTS A SHAFT THAT MOVES THE POINTS BACK AND FORTH. YOU CAN WATCH THE POINTS OPEN AND CLOSE WHILE WATCHING THE AIR GAUGE. BELT SHOULD HAVE 1/2" DEFLECTION.
