ARB Compressor

This is kind of tech and kind of a wanted classified. I made the mistake of mounting my ARB compressor on top of the Tdi engine in the same spot the AC compressor would go. I did use some rubber blocks to help absorb the vibrations, but ultimately it was too much for the compressor and the compressor crankcase and body keep trying to shake loose from the motor housing. I can't imagine that is doing any good for the armature so I am looking to relocate the thing. I took the pump apart last year before the MAR and tightened it all up. But, it never made any pressure after that, and has started to come apart again.

I remvoed the compressor yesterday and disassembled it one more time. I realized upon disassembly that the exhaust valve plunger went BOING last year and never got put back in. I don't think I realized at the time that there was a part missing. So, if anybody has an RDCP style pump that is messed up in some other way, I would like to buy it for parts or buy that part from you.

Checking with GBR to see if they can supply that part, Poly Performance does not give a price for it.
Circled in red in the attached crappy diagram.
Thanks...

Nice Dave, thanks. After seeing yours mounted there I decided to do the same. So I should expect mine to self-destruct too?

Just FYI, if ARB has it their pricing is way better than poly performance. I got some stuff direct last year, and got the things they didn't have from poly performance.
