Anyone have ARO parts

Recommended Posts

I figured I'd throw this out to the masses- does anyone have a spare nut (item 39448) for an ARO 8315? This is the piece with 2 flats near where the air comes in. Evidently, I over-tightened mine and ripped the threads off. A very quick search online shows one possible source in California and one in the UK, but if anyone here has an old unit they're keeping for parts, may as well try to keep it in the "family". Thanks in advance.

Did you try over wrapping it with teflon tape. Mine was leaking there and about 4 wraps fixed it. I would be interested if anyone has found an economical source for long needle tips for the ARO or the CP 9361. The tool place in England is good but quite pricey by the time you get them over to Canada.

It's definitely broken off. The material on the nut is very thin where the threads are and it didn't take much to overtighten and break. No issues with performance and no air is leaking out, I just don't want anthing getting inside the unit. A wrap of electrical tape on the outside will work as a fix, but I'd rather have something more permanent.

Paleo Tools has a long stylus. You have to change the front end bushing with theirs so it will fit but that is easy. All in, it was pretty cheap.
