Please click HERE to see a diagram of the compressor you inquired about. FS10 compressors are outlined starting on page 7.

Don't even try to rebuild your FS10 or FX15. Parts rebuilders even sell new FS10 in reman boxes due to the amount of damage FX15 and FS10's cause when they fail. When the teflon rings come off, it's considered a black death failure, or catastrophic failure. Most times a firewall forward replacement of parts was needed with those.. To try to rebuild one on your own will cause nothing but wasted time, more money lost, you can get a new one from the board sponsor for around $200 so it doesn't make sense fooling with those anchors..

If your compressor looks like the one pictured, save your money and use the time tio make sure the system is clean. Any residule contaminated oil left in the system, will work to destroy the new compressor..

Almost impossible to rebuild anything today, and compressors are no exception, here are some examples, Honda master cylinder, new one cost 44 bucks, just a rubber kit cost 40 bucks. 60 bucks for a pair of half axle boots, 50 bucks for a rebuilt half axle with the new boots already installed, 100 bucks for a rebuild properly C105D alternator, 175 bucks for just the rotor.

I love these ones, 367 bucks for an engine on a lawn mower that sells new for 225 bucks, 275 bucks for a 27" picture tube for a TV set that sells new for 150 bucks, 37 bucks for a single replacement head for a floppy drive, there are two of them that sells new for ten bucks. Timer, motor, and heater element for a clothes dryer that cost 100 bucks more than a new dryer.

I did run across a gasket kit for a compressor, the price was more than a new compressor, but didn't bookmark that site. Want more examples?
