Thepeanutking's Vintage Compressor Rig

Tue Oct 12, 2010 11:34 am

Hello there, everyone I just wanted to share one of my many But very important projects that has been in opertion since early 2007 and has been a work in progress Adding little things as money allowed and the last thing I just put on was a Pressure Regulator (to scuba tank) Glad to get that finally it makes filling tank easyer and Safer, And added two more air storage tanks so I have a total of 4 and one portable extra one, So what I have here is a I.H. Model 223 , Type-30 work horse Built in 1963 it just chugs along at 1725 RPM all day long if need be , And I built just about everything so that it was the way i wanted it, But anyway anyone got questions let me know.
I had more pics but doesnt work like I know??

Yea they are not very portable, But Very dependable and dont make alot of noise while running and I think it is a Very Good Compressor for home use or small dive shop. The only other thing I want to change over is the mecanical pop off valve to a nice electric one , But they are exspensive. But I find a good deal on one I will change it.
