Special compressor are crazy expensive. Here are two more tools I made to help take the compressor pump apart.

The big wrench I cut out of scrap and welded it together. It worked great.



This tool was a set of socket adapters I had never used the largest on so I converted it into a tool. Then I added 3/16 and 11 gauge sandwiched together.


As you can see, I have some clean up to do.

As you can see the diaphragms were very bad on this one.

The cylinders look great.





The head and valves are all cleaned up. A few hours in the cleaning tank scrubbing.
Then pressure washed the head one last time with the red pressure washer tip.
Time to lap the valves.

The head cleaned up pretty nice.


After and before.

If someone wants to rebuild a Quincy QR-25 325 here is a video series that shows you how to do it. This guy really knows his stuff.

Two new belts are on order. https://www.vbeltguys.com/
pretty good prices on belts and shipping. (flat rate shipping)
the belt is B67 5/8" by 70" outside. $20.75 shipped for two V belts.

That seems very fair to me.
I getting supper close to having everything I need to finish.
I need to lap the valve surfaces. Clean head mating surfaces piston top and put the head back on.

I still need to do the dreaded painting. I hate to paint.
If I had my big powder coating oven built I would just powder coat it.

We have had so many sales on the steel business that I have not had time for my compressor.
I finally got the right bearing seal in on Friday and I installed it yesterday.
No more leaking oil out the side and covering the side with oil.


It does not look like much but I am happy to get it installed.

Last month was the best month so far for my CNC plasma business and my son is still in collage so I had do all the orders myself. I have not had much time for the compressor rebuild.

I was able to get some work done on the compressor.

I cleaned up the head gasket and top of the pistons.
I hope to work on the valves some this weekend.

The valves are lapped and all rebuilt but one.


All the other parts look really good.

I need a new bolt for the discharge valve and the thick platform washer. The discharge valve bolt is broken off and platform washer looks like it has seen better days.
Looks like it is time to call local Quincy dealer.

I ordered the bolt off ebay expensive for a bolt.

I called Quincy and ordered the platform washer. I priced the bolt and I should have ordered the bolt from them also for 1/3 the cost.

Next time I will check from them first and go from there.
Quincy has a Warehouse 2 hours from me so I should have the part this week.

First class mail has gotten so slow. My parts shipped Monday and still are not here.
I may still torque the head and put the other three valves in it.
This is taking to long I thought I would be using it by now.

It may have to wait for paint the way it is going. I hate to do that because it may never get painted once I put it in service.
