I almost forgot! I wanted to find info for a guy who has a trucking operation down the highway a piece.I didnt go see his compressor.Though I looked on Google search for the brand to check for him a headgasket.He says it needs a is a Schram compressor.I noticed online that there are a few used for sale with rotory compressors .(Like GM blowers converted)I have seen those.But this man says his uses half the engine pistons to compress air.I had saw A Ford V-8 converted like that but this guy says it is not a Ford V8.It may be a 4 CYL.I had some numbers from it but left them in the lunch room..So does any of you guys know where to get a headgasket and parts for that SCHRAM aircompressor?I bet it is like those you run jackhammers with.

alot of them were based on internal harverster tractor. within the past two years someone at gave out information on a parts supplier, try the section of ytmag that deals with farmall/ih.

Clod, you need to know the make of engine that it is. I have seen Cat 3208's set up this way and I'm sure there are other engine's converted to half compressor too. Go look at it and get some ###, a pic would help too.

Thanks Bob Ont.. I hope to go see the machine myself soon.I ask the man (on the phone) if it looked like a Wisconsin or any engine he has seen because you need to do only a camshft grind to convert an engine.He does not likely know much of engines though because he said he didnt know.I will try to get some info monyana on the machine.The numbers he passed on had no brand of engine but I got the info second hand.I expect to learn more tomarrow.It could be some common engine that a gasket could be bought at an auto parts store.But I hope if it is an odd one that you will be able to help on ID of it.Ill ask around to see if they have a digital camera.I found Harris Eqip co online which claims to have parts for most any compressor.So I called the man and told him their 800 number.I hope to contact the compressor owner tomarrow ,Unless we are snowed under here.I remember you was helpful on the hydro steering thing when I was working on the crewboat at the other job,Thanks bob!

Bob,,If it was snowing in Texas now I would move to Chiwawa Mexico with an amigo that works here in spare time..I can't stand cold weather..But strangely enough..The guy told me it snows even there where he is from.I never knew anyone had seen snow in mexico..WOW!!My PC must be acting up or the line..It slowed down a good deal.I hope Ron/Pa got my note.
