    Kinda dangerous putting an impact on the nut to tighten the piston in place. Supposed to be torqued to 100ftlbs. Also the piston is moved by oil pressure not discharge. Otherwise, it's a pretty good video.

    Pretty good video but I want to point out a couple things. What your calling a lip seal is called a wear ring. The lip seal is used to isolate a cavity behind the bearings that is ported to suction. Also, what your calling a head plate is the bearing cover plate. And what your calling a loader is the slide valve piston. It needs to be noted that some compressors have belleville springs found in the bearing bores and the orientation of the belleville springs need to be noted. It also needs to be noted that the piston shaft should NEVER rotate in the slide valve. If it does, there is a slide valve repair procedure that needs to be performed. When the piston is removed, the bore needs to be inspected for scoring & damage and cleaned. As Dan said above, it’s dangerous to use an impact wrench to put the slide valve piston back on. Your supposed to put a drop of Locktite 271 on and torque the nut to 100 ft-lb. Also, the bearing cover bolts are supposed to be torqued to 165 ft-lb. Again, it’s otherwise a pretty good video.
