want air on my 404hi
« on: July 06, 2019, 04:52:49 pm »
Hi all,
I'd like to have air on my 404 funk so what do I need. Mainly for tyres but small tools would be great.
I've been looking for an air pump that fits on the engine but don't know what alternatives I should be looking for.
What/where are the tanks?
Ideally I'd love a look at how another 404 has it.

Air on the 404s was quite rare, moose might be able to help as he has knowledge of using air con pumps as compressors, and being as yours is likely an m180 engine I'd guess there's an air con pump available for it. Otherwise you could run a compressor of the pto if it has one?

We have (what I think is) an original 404 air compressor kicking about somewhere. We eventually decided we didn't want to have something uneccesary spinning all the time, and got a 24V electric one from a fire appliance. Which we've not got round to fitting.

It goes to the left of the engine (looking from the front), slightly further out from the genny/alternator.

Happy to send you a picture, and could be talked into selling it as we're unlikely to use it.
