    thanks, can you see if this is the right setup ? the only parts i'm not so sure off is the cup where the springs are sitting in and the rubber seal in front of it, because when turning the housing everything just slided out....offcourse…

    Default piston rod

    almost done, did take apart the piston rod , cleaned and put back together with new seal, now waiting for the honing tool to give the cilinder where the piston is sitting a nice and smooth inner wall again, meanwhile i will clean out the airlines on the truck...when draining the air tanks besides a bit moisture there's also some black stuff coming with it, what looks like oil…..is it possible that the engine oil used for lubricating the pump is forced into the airlines somehow?

    I am not certain but it seems likely. I notice the same thing from the tanks on my truck and the compressor is lubed from the engine oil supply so any blow by will end up in the air system.
    This is true even with industrial compressed air systems and the water and oil is often removed thru the use of filters and dryers. The deuce does not have either of these standard to my knowledge.

    I have a whole take out and don't know what shape it's in. Shipping the whole thing would bet is high. I can open it up if you just want the spring or any other small parts just pay shipping.

    Glad you did not want the whole thing. I don't remember taking this apart but some of the nuts were loose. Then no spring inside! I think I have one or two more air packs for parts and will look sea Monday. Sorry.

    however….the big spring, should it be there ? accidently i came up with a rebuild kit for the short style airpack and there i've seen is a large spring included but i'm not sure about the size of that one...so now i'm wondering if the long style airpack should have a spring inside there ? maybe a stupid question, just wondering....??

    Sorry found one short pack and one 5 ton air pack in the parts trailer. Could not find the spring that came off the long pack so no spring from me.
