    Another ARB twin repaired. So during this one I learned once the bolts break there is no way to safe the motor. I had a discussion with ARB technical support and they confirmed the way the nut that holds the bolt that breaks is keyed into the counterweight it will not come off without the bolt removed. Well if the bolt is broken there is no way to do that so you’re screwed.

    Bottom line is either upgrade your bolts before they break or make sure you’re within your 24 month warranty period otherwise you may be up a creek.

    I wonder if the single has the same problem?
    "Do you even wheel bro? only if its with a Yeti "

    Is this still a common problem? I just got a twin earlier this year. Has ARB not made any changes?

    Not an issue with the single compressors. for some reason these compressors get stuck in the power stroke, and the break happens when they fire up with compression in front of the piston.

    a buddy of mine just installed an unloader valve in line with the outlet of the compressor and it works really slick. basically a one way valve that will close when the compressor kicks on, and when it stops it purges the air behind it (our of the compressor) He does have an air tank, so it doesn't actuate much. may be a bit weird or annoying coming right off a compressor.

    the one he got was much more compact than this, but it gives some good info on what it does exactly.

    It's been well established that you are the exception to pretty much every general rule of thumb out there
