I am seeking some help/advice to the repair a Craftsman Dirt/Mist eliminator. Model #282-160091.
I am helping a family member in the repair of his air compressor filter. He has made an attempt to do a repair himself after going to Sears to be told this filter is no longer supported. I was not able to see the the original parts, before his attempted repair which failed.
Anyway, if this was mine, I would replace the whole filter. His cash flow is minimal, hence my volunteerism.
So, moving on, I am looking for the black plastic fitting that enters thru the bottom hole in the base of the poly carbonate filter bowl. Or a work around using other parts to seal the base of the bowl, which also has to incorporate the original petcock.
I will call the black plastic fitting a "bulkhead fitting" with a bulkhead nut. Also probably requires a gasket or two making the bulkhead fitting airtight. I will include some pics of filter and some of the related parts.
If anyone knows of a supplier for this type of "bulkhead fitting" and associated gasket and nut, It would be appreciated.
The stainless steel bolt that is inserted thru the bulkhead fitting is not a original part. I failed to remove the bolt before the picture as taken. The petcock needs to be inserted from the bottom up, into the bulkhead fitting.
