Can anyone tell me how or where I can find an exact compressor for the early cars? Or if not, is there a way to make one? My 4 finger inside one broke on me.I have a McPherson strut compressor, but it won't work too well on early coils.Thanks,Bob

Bob,

I'm not sure what you mean by an "exact compressor" but it sounds like you used to have the internal compressor that I now have. In fact I've been using mine recently and learned a little trick to making it work easier. By cutting the shaft a little shorter, I can use it from the top side of the shock tower instead of having to turn the nut through the lower part of the spring. I bought mine from Eastwood. How did yours break? That sounds dangerous!

I just borrow one from Autozone. You leave a deposit, use the tool all you want and get your deposit back when you return the tool. Makes a lot of sense to me for a tool you only use every 30 years or so *LOL*.

My nut at the top stripped out(too much usage over the past 5 years)I went to Autozone and Pep Boys and all they could tell me is "We don't have anything like that" or "What is that?" I guess I've got to check with a local jobber and find an old timer there.

I have them. Just put them in the new catalog. Let me know if you are interested as the salespeople don't have the part number yet

You'll still need to get with me to order. The part number is not yet in the system. I have a couple here that I used for inspection and photography.
