I'm starting this post in hope of learning as much about pressurized water systems of old. I would like to keep w/ this system in our 1959
Flying Cloud, so here are some questions.
-What are the major pitfalls of this system?
-Where was the compressor located typically? (my tank has a little inlet for the air on the outside of the trailer...seems weird for it to be out there)
-Is there a good source for a new air compressor similar to the old ones.
-Has anyone put in a larger compressor to use for tools and tires and such? Is there a way to do this safely so that oil can not contaminate?
-How would an in line pressure valve work and where do you get one of those?
-Does anyone have a schematic diagram or pictures of the components involved in an old pressurized fresh water system?
-While I have it apart should I treat the inside of the old tank some how.
Any help on this would be great.
