Air compressors
[Return to Topics]

several months ago there was information about building an industrial type air compressor from an automobile engine. I should have copied the item so I hope someone else did. The information would be appreciated if you can send it to my e-mail address. Thanks.

Michael- I think I remember the threads here about air compressors you mention. Many years ago I had a special cylinder head made for the 1928-1934 Models A, B, & C Ford 4 cylinder engines. The end cylinders ran and the middle two made compressed air.

In the early eighties I talked a student mechanic thru getting a Ford V-8 engine based industrial compressor system up and running. The left side 4 cylinders ran and the right side 4 cylinders used a special cylinder head to put out compressed air.

Both were made by Gordon Smith Company, Bowling Green, KY. If I remember the thread right the company is still doing business with a slight name change. I think the check valve gadget that you can screw in place of a spark plug is still on the market. They were common years ago, when the alternative was a hand operated tire pump.

All things considered, a good bet here in IA now looks like a little $99.95 portable compressor and tank, shown in a local newspaper ad insert. Check your Orschlean ads. Good luck, IHank

Hi Michael,going back when I was a kid,we took a V-8 ford engine,used the inside 4 cylinders for air compressor and the outside four to run the engine.there was a company that manufactured these
compressors,who I don't rember.We also took a Ford
Tractor engine removed one spark plug,inserted a
adapter that had a ball bearing inside that acted as a check valve, we filled up our tires with it.
Good luck,have a nice day,Respectfuly Joe Busa

Hello, I've been searching around the Internet trying to find the number of Golden Smith & Company and was finding very little success. Luckily, I stummbled upon this sight and was informed that a slight name change was very likely. If anyone knows the new of Gordon Smith & Co and would reply back to me I would truly appreciate it. Thank you!!!
