    Default ARB Compressor - HOSE COUPLING

    Hi Guys,

    Inside the quick link hose coupling on the compressor is a small o-ring that prevents leaking when you insert the hose. Mine has "disappeared". Anyone have any idea what the size is? "They" want R 394 for a new coupling; I only need the 50 Cent o-ring....

    Regards

    I had a look at my compressor. I can see what looks like a black rubber O-ring deep inside the coupling. But there is no way I can get it out to measure it. Sorry. But I think even if you had one, it would be very difficult to fit it.

    I wonder how your one could have came out..unless it disintegrated.

    I experienced the same problem with my hose o-ring than you.
    Went to Adendorffs and buy a small case of o-rings with different sizes for R 55-00.
    One of the o-rings fits.

    Yes that's the nice thing about the ARB couplings, they are not as obscure to find parts for when compared to the Chinese compressors.

    Check the OD of the male coupling, then you have the ID of the O ring.It should not be thicker than 2mm

    Is it the 1/4 tubing X 1/8 NPT fitting like this?
