11-20-2012 07:25 PM New compressor
I picked up this 2 stage air compressor off e-bay. I added an automotive AC condenser to my old compressor and it worked quite well, so I added the home made condenser to the new compressor. It is simple but effective. The condenser is on the unloader side of the system, and when the condenser bleeds off air down to about 5 psi the filter opens and spits out any water in the system. Thus the little container to catch the water.
Since I kept my older compressor I installed a set of circuit breakers with a flipper between them so that only one can be turned on at a time. I also added the hour meters to keep track of service time.

Well this is what is left of my wood jams. This stuff won’t even make good kindling.

During my test fitting I had a hard time trying to bolt the cross piece in. On closer inspection I found that the front side of the cross brace was hitting the cowl, so I ground it down a little and it fits well.

11-20-2012 07:19 PM Cab rebuld cont. Installing steel jams 101
The next thing I discovered was that the wood jam hinges are different. I tried to use the wood jam hinges and when I test fitted the doors and they were rubbing the cab. After sleeping on it I was going to file the holes to allow the hinges to slide outward. The next day I compared the wood jam to the steel jam hinges and guess what they are different. The steel one’s holes are just what I needed to clear the cab.
