@Tom, after last year's update, minimum amount of character for search keyword was decreased to 3 from 4 but now increased back to 4. When I tried to search stuffs like "ebc", "rhd", and "gt3" few minutes ago, the results come up nothing. Can revert back to minimum 3 character? TQ.
@nw111
thanks for reporting, i've just realised this after a recent server update if you noticed some downtimes recently
I am aiming to reduce minimum search letters to 2
weird that I didn't get notified about the @ tag as well

@nw111 you can now search for as little as 2 letters - try 'v6'

Finally...my camshaft holder arrived from China. The U shape metal is for holding the camshaft, the long rod for locking the crankshaft (there is a slot at the crank and need to removed a plug on the engine block ), the short rod is for locking the flywheel (There is an opening where the gearbox meet the engine).
When i will try this tool? Thats another story.

BTW, the cordless drill (in the Bosch carry box) at the background is to be given away foc should i decided to buy a 20V cordless impact drill. Why? because 10.8V is just not enough for me, it does not have impact function, i dont have space to keep an impact drill and a cordless drill/screwdriver.

what impact you plan to buy? Maybe can group buy if the price is right. My bosch cordless I connected a brush and use it to clean toilet floor. HAHAHAHAHA

Eh...same here.very effective toilet cleaning tool...hihihi. i use the 3pcs drill brush set with the cordless.

I am aiming for Daewoo 20v at shopee. It will be used as home improvement tool and small diy project. If there is a shop can offer discount then count me in for the grp buy..it was listed online at 299. So far i cant find any shop in melaka selling such alternative brand, its either high end stuff or very low end stuff.

For car diy job i already have a Mr Mark air impact wrench which i believe is much more powerful than any cordless type.

yup..mine only have a small tank so repeated or non stop use of the impact wrench will require rest after a few use to allow air to be recharge in order to achive max impact force.

havent find the right shop?
DIY lah.....careful though as i crack the cylinder head on mine when tightening it causing air leak. Mine has blocks which is made using thin cast iron.

if branded then hardware shop that sells compressor should have it. if not try shopee, will be a tough search sometimes due to how seller named their product.

My comp head was bought online.

what are u looking for?
I bought my compressor head online.
problem when buying online is risk of the part wont fit esp for alternative brand as most ad does not include measurement.
At times its hard to find parts online due to how the seller named their product.

Mine is unknown brand and I bought the whole thing for RM100. I'm thinking if it's worth fixing or not. hahahaha

If too many parts needs replacing then it might cost more than the compressor or can get a new cheap one. Then again u will know how to fix the comp in the future if u repair the current one.

starts at 1500 for Swan 2 piston electric motor driven comp with big tank. Will exceed 2000 if u opted for a Robin gasoline engine instead of electric motor which will allow the comp to operate where no electrical supply is available.

One piston recharged the air slower but for me if its coupled to a big tank like 50l, its good enough for me.
My tank is small (forget my tank capacity) like the one u get when buying RM200-300 air comp. U will lose sufficient impact power quickly and with one piston charging it, some pause/rest is needed between few multiple use.

it depens on your usage really. There is also the max air pressure. if i recalled correctly the air pressure valve can be change so u can holder higher air pressure but i am not sure on the saftey aspect.

Ah.... I checked the price for a new one for the version I have, it's about 380 only. Let's see how it goes. If the service is cheaper than that - I'll just do that. OTherwise this thing is scrap metal.

the valve and the meter on the top doesn't work and the air doesn't seem to open up
a stuck air valve thing. normally it will happen if the tank is not drained of fluid every now and then causing dirt/rust/gunk sticking at the valves.
Remove the fittings and get replacement. If u are lucky the gauge is still ok.
my comp have 2 outlet ( useless really when the tank is too small ) and one of them is broken like yours. already fixed but forget the cost. Should be well below RM100.

Wait...try clean the fittings internal first.
