Heres a rescue project nearing complete.

Based on took a 20 gallon tank from a Craftsman 220v 2HP 7 scfm at 40 PSI compressor that had reed valve issues.

I rook off the original motor and compressor head, and added a Honda GX160 from a power washer that I rescued from the curb on trash day.

On the other end, I added a HF compressor head that I got from the clearance table.

Last week, my brass Control Device stuff was delivered from ebay, then I made a few trips to local hardware places and was shocked that the common plumbing fittings were so high $$, but absolutely required.

Here it is after a short run to test for leaks:
