I showed these pics to a friend of mine that rebuilds compressors. He said not to bother with it, those are not rebuildable, at least properly. Sorry.
Go to somebody around you that sells industrial air compressors and they can get you a comparable pump.

All the advise definitely makes sense. If I really needed a big compressor I would buy a good one but this is just a toy. I have a few blasting projects in mind that will need high flow. I will look into a mid priced replacement pump that has the right dimensions and the correct micro-V pulley.

In the mean time I'm off to the races on the rebuild for the following reasons:

1 I already disassembled and cleaned up the pump.
2 I already ordered the gasket set shown above.
3 The bearings, journals, and wrist pins turn smooth and tight.
4 I've never honed a cylinder before so I want to try it.
5 If I rebuild it I won't feel as bad about overpaying for it.
6 I have a tinkering addiction.
7 If I die next week and go to heaven I can look down and smile because my rebuilt pump will have lasted a lifetime.
8 If I die next week and go to hell I'll just wait around for the bastard that sold me the compressor to show up.
9 If I paint it Chevy orange I'll beat any of you Ford guys in a compressor race.
10 Then I can paint the tank emerald green and have twins.

I when I got to #7 and then harder at #8! Too funny!

Can't disagree with #9 either, LMFAO!


Carry on!

That is a really good way to put it!!

Just for info... I have that very same compressor in my shop at home... I have run the ever living crap out of it.. I did put reed valves in it once but that was 20 years ago.. I agree it's not a HD compressor and it's meant for hobby use but I have abused mine and it still pumps great!

Clean it up, assemble it and hope for the best while you look for another pump. You could offer it for sale once it's back together, and truthfully say it has new rings and reed valves. Double your money and buy something better.

Ya know. Thats probably the most honest accurate thing I've heard in a while! And I agree 100%

Good luck with the pump. I did it once aboit 6 years ago and still going. Takes a minute or two longer now to get up to pressure but thay may have more to do with me forgetting to turn it off and a hose breaking while I was on vacation for 3 days... yep she ran for 3 whole days.

Cub Cadet is a premium line of outdoor power equipment, established in 1961 as part of International Harvester. During the 1960s, IH initiated an entirely new line of lawn and garden equipment aimed at the owners rural homes with large yards and private gardens. There were a wide variety of Cub Cadet branded and after-market attachments available; including mowers, blades, snow blowers, front loaders, plows, carts, etc. Cub Cadet advertising at that time harped on their thorough testing by "boys - acknowledged by many as the world's worst destructive force!". Cub Cadets became known for their dependability and rugged construction.

MTD Products, Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio purchased the Cub Cadet brand from International Harvester in 1981. Cub Cadet was held as a wholly owned subsidiary for many years following this acquisition, which allowed them to operate independently. Recently, MTD has taken a more aggressive role and integrated Cub Cadet into its other lines of power equipment.
