    First off welcome to the site.

    I'm going to try to say this as politely as possible, this is the totally wrong thread for that question. Plus there is very little information in your question, the biggest piece of missing information would be...what kind of truck???

    There are specific areas devoted to each type of vehicle and some miscellaneous areas as well. I'm sure that a lot of people would be willing to help you out with your question, but they are going to need more info first. sorry.

    looks like you beat me to the info I was asking about.

    You'll want to post you question in "The Deuce" section located here The Deuce - Steel Soldiers::Military Vehicles Supersite

    Gimpy's pot is a 600lb clemco. Have to remember 1/2 pipe is about 3/8 on the inside. Not sure if that's what measurement you used for CFM. Either way, it's propably too big. We are on the hunt for the proper hose and nozzle.

    The fairmont is repowered with a 5.0 fuel injected motor, and AOD tranny. It's quick, but not real quick. Even gets 24-26 mpg on the highway. Pretty good for a v-8! Quit driving it about 5 years ago, got tired of paying exta tags and ins. Also have a second one with a 351 in it, it's a project that may never get done.

    I think the last time I saw a Ford Fairmont, it was parked next to a Dodge Aspen.

    So thanks to the great members of this site, we might have a nozzle and blast hood. Does anyone know how much line is too much from the blaster? Stretch was thinking 50ft. The output is 1.25 inch, I figure we should use hose that is the same size. Anyone?
    Don't worry about the size difference

    Stretch, you're right about the pipe, I forgot about the I.D. being a bit smaller. From the chart I saw, the 3/8 nozzle would still use about 211 and 238 CFM at 90 and 100 PSI. That's still a ton of air!!!

    Grainger should have the dead man valves if you can't find them anywhere else.

    with that size of compressor and size blast pot, 50 feet would be easily handled. The only real problem you run into with added length is pressure drop in the hose...when you're running 100 to 125 PSI, a pound or two isn't too much concern. My smaller pot has 25 foot of hose and it's just fine. 1.25" is probably too big for the whole hose, you're going to have to neck it down at some point unless you want to hold up that heavy hose and nozzle all day. Unless you're planning on using your 1/2" pipe nozzle all the time, 3/4" hose should be fine, but I would think you would size it according to what the deadman valve will accept.

    Ok Stretch, pics of the air filter housing. I have at least 5 of the filters for it.

    So I ended up grabbing a Joy air compressor, 150 cfm for cheap. It has an International Harvester slant 4 motor to power the comp. Anyone know anything about these motors to check BEFORE I try to fire it up? It is in poor condition, but I will try to bring her up to "full mission capable" status. One step closer to having a blasting trailer!
