Air compressor

Recommended Posts

Wow... Getting into this site is like sneaking into Fort Knox.  OK, maybe a forum of real people for a change.

I have a Midliner bought from military surplus. It has been a great truck. 

Now dealing with a compressor that has failed. Tag says Knorr Dahl. PS pump mounted on rear of compressor. Engine is Renault. More info and pics  if anyone has a clue.

I am looking for a rebuild kit or at least rings and valves.

Pretty certain my Midliners had Bendix compressors but the power steering pumps were driven from the timing cover on the front of the engine.

The truck is military surplus so who knows what was specified by the government or if it was a COTS purchase off of the dealers lot.

Have you ordered the build sheet from the dealer?
