I'm having problems with Detroit s60 air compressors. Yes I've searched this forum and many others. It's been stated by Westcoast (I believe) that these compressors use boost pressure to seal.? To eliminate they hose problem (rupturing) I'm wanting to eliminate this hose from intake manifold to compressor, and reroute to main air intake after breather. Any reason I cant/shouldn't?
And then try to eliminate the oil bypass problem by either making rings in compressor seal like any other motor compressor , or using a different set up off another motor manufacturer.
I don't see why this compressor set up is using forced air intake into compressor? Seems to me this is starting the problems to begin with.
3 compressors in 4 yrs is just not right.

I rerouted mine 8 or 9 years .I bought a little kit at the auto parts store has a 3/4 plastic nipple and a rubber grommett.Relaced the fitting in the intake with a plug and ran the compressor hose to the filtered air side of the intake after the air cleaners. It has worked fine. I researched y compressor at the bendix website and pressurized air is not a requirment for it to work properly.

You don't need to weld anything. Go to autozone and on that rotating rack help zone thing is a fitting and grommet for a PVC. Use astep drill to drill the aluminum duct and clean it out good ,install the grommet and the nipple and attach the hose from the compressor to it. Easy peasy

Make sure to remove the fitting in the bottom of the intake manifold and plug it with a brass plug.
