12 Volt Compressor Assembly Connections to the Compressor Unit
Remove the Old Compressor Assembly
- Use the 9/16" wrench to undo the 9/16" brass hex (JIC) and remove the air line from the silver coloured check valve.
- Use the 3/8" wrench and 3/16" Allen key to undo and remove the three bolts holding the Compressor Assembly to the frame of the Compressor Unit.
- Pull the red wire on top of the pressure switch to the old Compressor Assembly. Leave the adjacent red wire on the pressure switch.
- If you have an older Compressor Unit, cut the black wire of the old Compressor Assembly at a point about 3" (7.6 cm) away from the old Assembly. Strip the wire about 1/2" (1.25 cm).
If you have a newer Compressor Unit, simply disconnect the fittings connecting the black wires.
- Remove the old Compressor Assembly from the Compressor Unit Frame.
