thanks, i'm going to collect tomorrow morning, most times i've gone to collect something i've handed over at least £50, i'll shall feel strange giving him only £2.70! Laughing using a tank does open up a whole new world with compressors, i have plans to rally it though, i think you need a different insurance, safety tests ect ect Rolling Eyes.

has any one got any ideas on what i can use it for at a rally? i'm thinking blowing bubbles, making a ball levitate in a tube or similar.

thanks,
callum

well i've go it, its the twin cylinder type and is in very good condition, no knocks or play. the seller said he brought it coupled to a single phase motor, he only wanted the motor so he sold the compressor.
what looks like red oxide primer coming through on the pulley is in fact faded lining. this leads me believe it was used with a stationary engine at some point if some one went to the effort of painting it brunswick green and lining it.
