Default compressor

Re the compressor, I had some nos spares , heaps of manifold gaskets , nos valves and govener and other bits. I did get onto a few other owners , a gold miner at Ballarat used them for years . My unit I passed onto a guy in Drouin years ago. The air receiver on it I didn't trust .... The MMBW had a few of them , mine was painted yellow . Seems some of them had a Ford V8 instead of the Waukesha , going by the AWM pics. The engine in mine was badly worn out with cracked block . .The magneto is a US made Bosch with a clever built in spark retard mechanism so the engine won't kick back on the crank handle ...ouch. The air passed through a cooler to the second stage. I had manuals and parts book .Engine is model XAH
