Hi everyone,
I've just picked up a second hand ARB compressor and was after a general idea on whether the pump should be stripped down and checked. It seems to work well at the moment, though I haven't given it a good work out.

Has anyone had to rebiuld their pump?
Were there any areas to be wary of?

TIA.

Cheers,
Wayne.

Ring ARB there are parts available and they will set you right on what you need if in fact you do

I think there is a saying about fiddling with things that are in good working order !

Drop one of your tyres to 20PSI and see how long it takes to pump back up to 40psi. i should take about 4-5 mins.. Someone here with a new ARB compressor should be able to tell you exactly how long it takes.. Michael

The ARB compressors are re-buildable. Mine was way down on "power" wouldn't hit the 100psi for pressure switch. I went into ARB and for $52 the sell a re-built kit which has a new barrel, piston, rings, and conrod. Very simple to fit up. Works like new now.
