Default Auxillary air compressor

Another forum had a member asking about the Gast auxillary air compressor that many of our birds have. They found a Grainger part number for it. It's a 2Z868, according to what they were told by Bleakley. This corresponds to a Gast 3HBB-10-M300X. Grainger also has a rebuild kit for it, a #3HDK3, which is a Gast K420. The pump sells for $549 and the rebuild kit for $120.

Excellent information. I have that pump in my coach, it's 16 years old and I wonder how much longer it's going to go before repairs are needed.

Your post is just the type of info we need.

There's a fellow on another furom that has experience with these pumps. I've specifically asked about what type of maintenance is required to maximize their life. Initially it's keeping airflow around the compressor to keep it cool and ensuring the inlet air filter is kept clean. Haven't heard about anything else yet.

Mine is original. I clean the little filters once per year. So far, it is good. I guess it's like anything else, it will wear out one day.
