If they're the Brown oil less compressors they will work for a diving compressor.

Looks like it was a good compressor in its day...

Parts might be a bear to find...!!

The one on my 2002-2003 Dahlke dredge is a WR Brown, new at that time. I need an intake cap from the top of a worn out one.

Obdiah, I'll take two or three of those flea market ones if they still push air. Don't need any motors...

Wish I could find them around here!

Bought one at the junk yard for $5. found new bearings at Bearing Dist for $25. Diaphragm was in good shape. Very simple to rebuild. hooked every thing up with mask. Held steady 45# pressure while breathing. It has a larger head and diaphragm than T80. Should pump more than T80. Let me know if any body wants to part with one.
