I can only answer this through my own experience and all i can say is this is pig. You can only get to remove it by removing the inlet manifold and turbo from the top, or the drive shaft from the bottom. I chose the top way as i didn't fancy removing the drive shaft and it's complexities. Once the turbo is out of the way you can just about get your hand and tools in but you also need to go underneath to get to the bottom bolts. as above this is just about doable.
When you remove the tubo oil feed pipe watch for the small o'rings each end and remember to make sure they are there when you refit. Again experience, i dropped one and didn't realise untill i had a pool of oil under the car.

Any proffesional mechanics may have an easier way but i can't see how.

Good Luck.

I HAVE 7.5 HP VERT 80 GAL TANK COMPRSSOR IT KEEPS BURNING CONTACTS ON PRESSURE SWITCH. CONTACTS STICK TOGETHER AND COMPRESSOR WON'T SHUT OFF AFTER REACHING PRESSURE. WHAT'S CAUSING THIS?


There is a capacitor across the contacts
To absorb the inductive collapse if the motor.

But this problem usually only happens to DC motors not AC.

If the starting Cap has 2 leads I'm stumped if it has 3 leads replace it.

How do I know the battery status on my Stanley 350 amp jump start ? When I push the button it always lights up all 3 lights regardless of how much charge is on


I have a more basic version from Home Depot. From day 1, the charge indicator never worked correctly. Have had it several years now and probably by this time, the battery is just getting weak and needs to be replaced. I found that charging by the cigarette lighter doesn't work too well. Charging by the AC adaptor overnight is the best and I do it every 4 months. Once and a while, I test it by connecting to an old starter motor. If it spins at decent speed, the charge is OK. The cigarette lighter plug connection is also good to use when you need to change the car battery and don't want to loose all your radio presets. It backfeeds the system and keeps all battery powered systems powered when the main battery is disconnected.
NEVER run the engine without the main battery connected! Good way to burn out all your electronics.

T-30 wiring changing from 460 volts to 230 volt 3 phase


There are several items that will need to be changed or replaced. First rewire motor. Remove weather head cover. On the motor will be a tag that shows how to wire for 460 volts and 230 volts.Check the tag and present wiring to make sure they match. Then look at the 230 wiring and change wiring per motor tag. Again check the motor tag to see max amps at 460 volts and 230 volts. 230 volts will be higher than 460 volts. Check the starter (if so equiped) to see how many amps its rated for. You will probably have to replace the starter. Make sure it has a 230 volt coil. Next size the overload heaters for your amperage. This conversion is not a simple task unless you're familiar with electrical . Good luck!!!
Next the starter coil will need to be replaced with a 230 volt coil

Motor doesn't shut off once it reaches its maximum pressure level. It continues to run until it is unplugged, whether it needs to refill or not.


Does this unit have a magnetic starter or just the pressure switch?Here are a few items I would check. Make sure power is unplugged. 1 - If it has a magnetic starter remove the box cover. you are checking the starter to see it has stuck closed. In the center of the starter should be what appears to be an indentation. use a screwdriver and push in on it. If it moves in and out freely it's OK. If it will not move you've found your problem.replace starter. 2 - Check the wiring to the starter. Black wire from motor should be on left bottom on overload. White motor wire should be on right bottom of starter. Incoming power should be located on top of starter left and right side. NO Starter, pressure switch only. 1 - Remove pressure switch cover. Inspect pressure switch contacts to see if they are open or closed. If contacts are open move on to wiring inspection.If closed drain all air out of tank. while draining air watch pressure switch contacts depending on pressure switch setting contacts should open around 130 - 135 psi. if all air drains out of tank and contacts do not open use a small screw driver and gently open contacts. They probably welded themselves together. If this is your problem I would get some new contacts. 2 - inspect wiring, left side of switch should have one wire from incoming power on top screw and motor wire on bottom screw. Right side of switch should have one wire from incoming power on top screw and motor wire on bottom screw. Good luck.

How do I wire my 60 gal 3 hp IR commpressor? What size wire, what size breakers, and where on the motor do I attach my wires. Motor says 15 amp, 220 volt. Thanks, Clint


I would use a # 10 wire size with a 30 amp breaker. The motor should already wired to the pressure switch unless it has a mag starter. If no mag starter incoming power should go to pressure switch not motor. If unit has a mag starter incoming power should go to top of mag starter.

1.Check the motor first. You can readily see if it's
burned or not. Run a megger test on the motor.
Test run the motor without the compressor.

rewinding shop.
3. Once it is okey, remount the motor, and start it up.

I've got a Saylor-Beall vertical compressor that I've been using for years. It originally came from a closed Chevron station and has a very large tank. Problem is now when I give it power it just buzzes...


DOES IT BUZZ WHEN THE TANK IS AT ZERO PSI? IF THERE IS PRESSURE IN THE TANK THEN IS THE COMPRESSOR UNLOADING WHEN IT CUTS OFF - STARTING UNDER A LOAD? YOU COULD HAVE A BAD SPOT IN THE MOTOR. YOU CAN TURN THE FLYWHEEL A LITTLE (1ST TURN IT OFF!) AND THEN TRY IT TO SEE IF THERE IS A BAD SPOT IT COULD LAND ON SOMETIMES.YOU COULD ALSO HAVE BURNT POINTS IN THE MAGNETIC STARTER CAUSING A BAD CONNECTION. YOU CAN JUMP THE STARTER BY CONNECTING THE WIRES STRAIGHT THRU BUT BEWARE YOUR PRESSURE SWITCH WILL NOT CUT IT OFF NOW! IT IS JUST TO TEST IT.
YOU MAY HAVE A WEAK LEG OF CURRENT FROM YOUR POWER COMPANY. PUT AN AMP CLAMP AROUND EACH MOTOR WIRE AND CHECK AMP DRAW WHILE COMPRESSOR IS TRYING TO START. IT SHOULD BE PULLING ABOUT 3 TIMES THE AMPS DURING STARTUP - 80-90 AMPS? SEE IF YOUR METER DROPS TO ZERO. HOPE THIS HELPS, JODY

Battery to starter motor.


Just to be clear, the starter should have a large terminal (where the battery cable connects) and a smaller terminal (where the activation wire connects)
The starter is grounded via the mounting bolts.
The activation wire runs from the starter to the starter switch.

Generator won't start & now starter will not shut off when it has power


I have seen this happen in cars- the problem is most likel the ignition unit -they do not spend a lot of money on them in production. So here is what is happening . When you are putting key in and out metal filings are being deposited inside unit- this is now causing a short and draining batteries. Start here.This happened with cars a few years ago and they were catching fire in driveways.Call dealer and get replacement ignition- should be cheap fix. Good luck.
