SOURCE: air comp bad crankshaft and rods need to remove and replace

What type of air compressor do you have?
Is it a single motor\pump combination is the pump and motor separated by a fly wheel? If it's the first one don't waste your time or your money. Hard to find parts hardier to justify the money if you do.
If it's the second then you should make sure you can get a rebuild kit and replacement parts. If you haven't already.
Assuming you have anyone of the more common pump brands like Dayton, Champion, Ingersoll Rand.
Dis-assembly should start with the top end. Remove the head and valve plate then the cylinder head bolts and cylinder head. Remove the wrist pin\pins and piston\pistons. Next remove the lower rod end caps and pull them out taking care not too nick the crank bearing journals. Remove the front crank cover and and (if it has one) the rear bearing cap\plug. You should be able to remove the crank through the front access. You may need to tap the back end of the crank clear or the rear bearing.
The bearings will probably need to be pressed out.
Unless you have a pump that is considered non serviceable or is an oddity this should do it.
If your pumps layout differs from the norm or you just need more specific information please let me know. Just include the make and model and I'll be glad to help you out. Good luck.

SOURCE: I have a air compressor mod#919.166600, oil less

to be honest a non lube pump design is problematic at best, if you use it for any length of time they just do not hold up, money well spent in a oil lubricated pump you will be far happier!

SOURCE: I have to replace the piston rod-to-motor shaft

Your unit was most likely made by Porter Cable and parts may be matched at your nearest Dewalt parts center. The best way to remove the bearing is to use a press, however the fast/dirty method is to use a Dremel with a thin cutting wheel to remove the bearing from the shaft. Remove the head of compressor being carefull not to tear gaskets. Loosen screw holding rod to bearing and remove rod (note position). Make two cuts on outer bearing shell and remove shell. Make one cut on inner race, then expand slightly with blade of screwdriver and remove. Use generic bearing 6203 available at auto parts. Clean shaft with fine sandpaper and install bearing to noted position. Probably a good time to replace cylinder and ring. Usually part Dewalt / Porter cable part #k-650 or use Sears part. After assembly turn several times by hand checking for alignent and free movement. Be carefull with the fan, easy to break. You probably should order a spare blade. Good luck with your repair and post again if you have questions.

After replacing the timing belt the 2nd belt tore up completely in minutes, it appears the fly wheel bearings pulled out a 1/2 inch, I pushed it back in but it again came out and tore the belt.


Do this. Push the bearing back in and use a center punch and make 4 evenly spaced dimples around the outer edge of the bearing where it contacts the case.

To change the outer main bearing on a t30 - 23405l do you have to take everything apart including taking off the jugs?


Let me give you some info. I guess you are talking about the bearing next to the fly wheel. The crankshaft has to come completely out. the crank can not be removed until you have removed the rods from the crank shaft pin. Most of the time if a bearing goes bad you need to replace the rods and crank shaft pin. I 've never done it but if you can get the rods out of the way the crank will come out. My recommendation would be, remove the fly wheel, remove the inner cooler, remove any small tubing lines, Remove the front frame cover, Remove the 2 bolts holding the crank pin bushing (don't forget to lock wire these bolts back together during assembly), Remove the cylinder, head, piston and rod together as a unit. Don't let the piston come out of the cylinder or move around to much unless replacing the rods. Once you get both LP and HP cylinders, heads etc off you can remove the front bearing cap exposing the bearing and a snap ring. Take a piece of wood or brass and from the crank shaft counter weight side (rod side)knock the crank shaft toward the fly wheel side until the snap ring can be removed. Once the snap ring is removed knock the crankshaft back toward the rod side and continue until out of the bearing races. Then remove the crank. The outer bearing can then be pressed off with the retainer at one time. Remove the sleeve. To remove the large bearing(back bearing) you need to be very careful and cut it off. Don't mess up the crank shaft. I've tried several ways to remove the back bearing but the easiest is cutting it off. To answer your question yes you have to disassemble to change bearings.

1995 Isuzu 5500 box truck 6 cyl diesel. truck overheated and water&coolant ended up in the oil pan and the motor ended up locking down. Can only spin fly wheel 1/2 to 3/4 revolution besides changing...


The connecting rods are probably frozen to the crank from overheating or the bearings are frozen. Pull the oil pan off and inspect the connecting rod bearings for a blueish coloring which is a sign they overheated. If they are you'll need to replace them all and have the crank and connecting rods turned.

I have ingrosoll rand t30 model 2340 motor is working very hard to spin the compressor sound of compressor is different to , rubber burning smell is also there , but belt is in good shape it is not loose.


May have a bearing going bad. Remove the v-belt and turn the motor by hand. Does it turn hard or produce an unusual noise. If so you have a bad motor bearing. If not turn the pump by hand. If it turns hard or produces an unusual noise you have a bad bearing in the pump. Also move the pump fly wheel up and down , left and right. If you can move it the front bearing is bad.

I need aparts break down list for the pump on this compressor to find the part number of the fly wheel. Mine is bent


The part # is 97335756 (Belt wheel). Typically its hard to bend a belt wheel. They usually break not bend. I would check the crankshaft and front bearing before purchasing the belt wheel.

How do i change the starter on a 96 century


If it's the 3.1 or the newer 3100 the starter should just be a couple 13 and 15mm bolts. Plus the nut for the cable. Hope this helps.
