    Gast 263 parts?

    I just picked up a DK nugget pump at the local pawn shop, it has a fairly beat up Gast 263? compressor mounted on there and was wondering if anyone knew where to get parts, specifically one of the heads I guess you would call it. The DK Nugget pump looks alright, its 2.5 in 2 out I want to use it on my 4" dredge, I used my Keene 3X4 pump on it last year and it was heavy and ran way too much water down the box.

    I just did a quick goggle search and saw several dealers that sell parts. Grainger.com was one of them. I didn't go any further searching. Good Luck!

    I found a parts cross reference guide on the gast web page a few years ago they use interchangeable parts
    a pca 10 and 263 or maybe 5HCD/6HCD 120/240v electric might use the same parts, armadillomining has rebuild kits
    I have 240v one in a box somewhere I got off ebay for $20 plus $50 shipping I was going to strip off the windings and put a pulley on it
    never got around to it.
    . looks like this photo I pulled from the web

    Years back I had a Gast compressor and didn't know what I had at that time and pitched it only to kick myself after finding out it was such a GREAT compressor! But my T-80 is filling the bill right now!

    I guess I will watch ebay then! The cheapest I found on there was 150 with 43 dollars shipping so I'll wait it out for a cheaper unit to cannibalize thanks Winners.
