      Hi Dennis,

      No, I was only speculating if an electric compressor system from a '78 could be adapted to a '76. I managed to fabricate a diaphragm for my pneumatic compressor so I didn't go the electric route. However, you might contact Cadillac King in Pacoima, CA and see if they have an electric compressor. You might also try Dbaer's Cadillacville in Winlock, Wa. I think the guy is trying to sell his business so I'm not sure if he's still open, but it's worth a shot.

      Hope this helps.

      Erik

O-rings can be found pretty easily through various auto parts stores but the diaphragm is impossible to find. I made a replacement using stretchable/mouldable rubberized canvas and it works great but I'm curious to see how long it will last. I don't think you'll find replacements for the rubber stops in the regulator, either. Mine looked pretty good so I didn't mess with them.

I wonder how difficult it would be to use an electric pump out of a '78 Cad. In any event, I'm keeping my fingers crossed that my fabricated diaphragm will hang in there.
