Air Compressor Parts Guide: Husky, Kobalt, Ingersoll & Campbell Hausfield Reviews

When working on an air compressor, all manufacturers will recommend using only genuine parts.  The simplest way to find parts is to check with the source of the air compressor, but sometimes you would like to “upgrade” or use parts that are rated better than the original parts.  You should always be cautious of the parts you use, insuring that the part is rated to handle the pressure or volume of air as the original part, or more.   Likewise, you should never replace pumps or motors that create more pressure or volume than the rest of the components can handle.  Always be careful when working with compressed air, as pressurized air can be dangerous.
