    I bought a IR ss3 compressor with a troubled pump. Granger says some of the parts for this pum have been discontinued and you have to have an account with Granger. Where can a hobbiest go to order ss3 pump parts?

I have worked on many IR compressors with the SS3 pump. A parts list can be faxed to you from grainger, use part #1WF72 for the pump only. Or try this address :

Order pump parts from grainger. The other parts can be replaced with generic grainger parts such as the pressure switch, check valve, capacitors etc. for the motor. If you are having a specific issue with your unit please detail the problem on your next post or email me. I will be glad to work thru the problem or modification. Good Luck!

Where do i get parts for a ingersoll rand model b tp5252 I have this old air compressor and it is not working properly I need some knowlage on how to fix it and where to get parts from.thank you.

First with out knowing what part of the country you are in I would recommend searching the internet for the closest authorized IR distributor. They can tell you if parts are available for your compressor or if it is to old. They will need the model and serial number . I have ran across a few old IR compressors that parts were no longer available. They can also get you a manual if available

I have an IR Air Compressor #SS3 E. It want stop running/building up pressure. I am sure its the pressure relief valve, but there are 2. One at the presure regulator and the other at the pump and motor.How...

if it is lifting both valves I would say that the pressure switch (regulator as you call it) is defective, if you try to shut it off using the manual switch and it keeps running, I would say that the switch is welded shut. if it does not shut off by 125 psi then it is faulty. The pressure switch is what controls the motor in response to pressure in the tank.

Ingersol rand model SS3-E runs but does not build any air pressure. Air just blows out the intake filter.

the back pressure valve has failed it costs about 15.00 and can buy from any truck parts store That's Peterbilt trucks or any large truck stores it's one of two sizes 1/2 inch or 3/4 inch when you pull it off be sure you know which way the air flow is or it will not build up.

What is the torque for head bolts on my ingersoll rand ss3 compressor?

I can't say from their manual, but I've never rebuilt a compressor (and I check every one with the mfg) for which the head bolt torque isn't in the range of 25 ft. lbs. to 40 ft lbs. If you can't find it, torque to 30 or 35 and you've got it knocked.

Looking for a maintenance manual

I worked at a tool rental store for several years that had many ir185 compressors. They had many manuals in boxes that were not used. I just bet that you could call or visit rental yards in your area that rent that unit and find all the information that you need. Talk to the service tach, most will be glad to help if not with manual, the info that you need to keep your machine in good service. IR service kits are available through enjoy
