    I noticed the circuit breaker for the compressor tripped last night when I went in the shop. The pump was locked up. After tearing down I noticed it had spun a rod. I was able to pull a piston and rod from an old pump, sand down the aluminum on the steel crank (thankfully it didnt get into the journal) and have it all back together except for the torn head gasket that will probably take a week to get shipped. If I cant find one quicker tomorrow, I will buy some gasket material and try and make my own. I feel totally helpless without a compressor. I have a portable for the gun I can use , but blasting is out of the question. Anyone know where to source a DeVilbiss head gasket?
