Help - Recommendation for air compressor

Recommended Posts

I need a recommendation for a home air compressor for filling my bicycle and car tires.... not much more than that.

- Size? I don't want the motor running if I have to fill two 75 Lb bicycle tires
- Hoses? Do I want a small unit that I can move around or a bigger one with long hoses? I friend had a small unit I didn't like as the hoses were hard plastic and not very flexible.
- Accessories? Basic stuff I will need or want? Fill presta and schrader nipples.
- Other uses for these compressors?

I have a battery powered unit now and find it a bit of a pain... it is noisy (I really don't like this noise) and way too slow.

How big a compressor is based upon what you are going to use it for.  For your purposes, one of the 110V "pancake" compressors should do fine:

      I am installing a new short block due to a scored cylinder and am having no luck finding proper camshaft timing tool and holder. I see lots of kits that say up to 2001? Any help would be appreciated.

      I need to remove the crankshaft pulley from my 2000 C2 Cab. Does anyone have tools 9285/1 and 9290 that they would like to sell?

      I have a 2006 Cayenne 3.2L. need to be having my air compressor replaced. I understand that the part number is 955.358.901.01. However a search reveals another air compressor for the Cayenne but seems to be associated with 04 models. Part number is 7L0616006c. The difference from the pics seems to be the bracket and that the latter seems much cheaper, $2xx as compared to $7xx.
      But can anyone tell me if the air compressor is the same?
      Thanks in advance
