Hadley Air Compressor Rebuild

Has anyone rebuilt their Hadley air compressor? I have the 850 pump and have found rings and a head on line. Mine will no longer pump the tank above 115 pounds (pressure switch is 110/135psi). Fixed the leak which cause the air compressor to run all the time (and probably ruined it). New pump is about $185 and rings are $10. Thinking about changing the rings ... any tips on doing this and does the pump work as good as new?

Rebuild it. I'm sure it is a simple project. Probably just need the head but if rings are cheap why not while you have it apart.

Thanks. Yes it does look simple, but after further checking on line the head is only $28.+ bucks and the ring $10.95. However, shipping and handling on the head is almost $19 (ridiculous) and $5 on the ring (also high for such a small item that will easily fit in an envelope). Added all together, that $63. If I could find free shipping for about the original price I'd do in a heart beat, but now I need to ponder if I might as well spend the bucks to buy new. Not a lot of places sell the parts for the Hadley pumps.

Just an update. I did put new rings in the Hadley air pump (around $15 w/shippig) and now pumps just fine. Was fairly easy with good instructions. New pump would have set me back $179 so feeling good!
