desiccant

I got my air compressor off and on the bench, can I dry the desiccant out or buy more. The book says blue when dry and white when wet. 93 1500

Garage
put the desiccant on some aluminum foil, turn up the edges.


place that on a cookie sheet, put it in the oven at 150°F
or a bit more.... don't get wild with the temp, you can destroy the stuff.

when it turns blue, it is ready to go back into service.


you can use the Microwave also: ( no foil though!!!! )

If you have a heat gun like below, with a mid temp setting you can dry it.

Its pretty cheap to buy new (Item # 4)....!!

Subtract the "electric cost" for the Heat Gun or the Stove and even less invested.

I have been told the only thing cheap about a Gold Wing is the "owner"....!!

We replaced it with new when rebuilding the 1989 Gold Wing Trike.

Had to weld the busted compressor mount. The compressor will come out with the trunk still on the bike.

How did you get the wires disconnected from the pump, I know there is a filter in there but I saw no way to get the rubber cover off without pulling the wires out by the roots unless there is a plugin inside.

This picture may give an idea to remove that rubber boot. There wasn't any difficulty as far as I remember.
I think I had to pull the wire terminals off from the connector in the second picture.
