Valve block/Compressor refurbished - Scotty comes through... again!

Thanks goes out to Scotty (SoCalUsedRoverParts: https://www.socalusedroverparts.com/), for sending me the valve block o-ring rebuild kit and compressor rebuild kit for my EAS. He sent them very quickly and I was able to rebuild my EAS valve block ( http://paulp38a.com/99p38a/eas-valve-block-renew/ ) and my compressor before my trip to Death Valley next week. It took about 4 hours total for the rebuild, but I did have some help rebuilding the compressor from a friend who has done it before.

Dennis (FourPoints formerly Rover Renovations) is not shipping products, even though the website is up, and never delivered on an order I placed in January. Buyer beware...

Some notes/comments on the rebuild:

EAS block:

The rebuild instructions above are great, but it is actually not a very technical rebuild.

Take it slow and be sure each o-ring is properly seated.

Number the block as well as the outside and inside of each valve.

During re-installation, be carefull b/c the collets can fall out really easily and get lost/difficult to find. I recommend not putting the collets in until the valve block is bolted back into the housing. The collets are not ferrous, meaning that even with a magnet, you cannot retrieve them from the dark corners of the firewall where they will fall.

For the compressor: be sure you use the correct small allen key for the recessed bolt holding the piston to the shaft.

Thanks again Scotty!

Me and Scotty have talked about that situation numerous times. Unfortunately it was one of the two nicest guys we have both dealt with that got a little "burned" in that deal. The other possibility being Don, who I built a motor for, installed, and generally fixed up his rig.
I must say, between the two of you, you are THE perfect customers in both mine and Scotty's experiences.:thumb:
Glad it worked out in the end, at least you know you can count on a couple of us to do what we can to make a situation right, regardless of who made it wrong.
