Question about Campbell Hausfeld Plumbing
If you absolutely can not find the head gasket for your compressor or pump, you may be able to make one. I have done it on a few machines, in particular a pretty hefty old, old sears compressor.
Buy a roll of fiber gasket material (not the cork) from the auto parts store. Also get some gasket making sealent. Permatex makes one for high pressure applications. It's grey.
Method #1; Use the old gasket as template to cut out a new gasket from the fiber material. Use scissors and an exacto knife.
Take the head and put it on a copy machine, and print out the picture. You may have to adjust the density.
Use the picture as template on the fiber gasket material (tape it down) and using scissors and an exacto knife, cut out the gasket.
You may need to study the head in relation to the gasket to determine any small holes etc, but this can work if you're neat and take your time.
If taking a picture of the head does not show where the gasket needs to be cut in relation to piston block, there is another way to try this.
Get a roller bottle of ink used to re-ink an ink pad (office supply store). Roll out the ink on top of the piston block to show the outline of the gasket. You may need to clean the surface off with alcohol first. Place a piece of paper on the surface to transfer the ink. This will give you an outline to use as a template.
Smaller round holes can be made with a drill bit and drill, hole punch, etc. Trimming the gasket can be accomplished with a rotary tool(Dremel) , a fine file ,etc.
Make sure the head surface and block surface are totally clean of old gasket material.
Place a nice thin,even coat of sealant on both sides of new gasket, and bolt head down with even torque on all bolts.
