    Default Porter- Cable pancake compressor c2001-wk

    Tube seal that seals supply line from compressor head to air tank has blown out. What kind of job is it to change and do I need a new head gasket, or do I even need to pull head and valve plate to change tube seal ? thanks in advance, Blaster....

    Default tube seal

    Hey blaster,
    You do have to pull the head to replace the seal..that part isn't so bad.. it is the taking apart of the housing as it is a clam shell style and is difficult to reassemble because everything has to go back together correctly..a fun project if you are comfortable doing something like that..if not..one for the repair center...
    hope this helps

    Default Tube Seal

    Thanks Craig;
    I have had it apart, and like you said its got to go back right and ever thing fits tight. Does the tube need to be in tube seal when tighten down ? I have ordered the gasket kit.

    Thanks again H.B.
