Thread: LR3 Hitachi Air Compressor Piston

    Default LR3 Hitachi Air Compressor Piston

    Hello LR# Owner, I am looking for a new or used piston for an LR3 Hitachi Air compressor, I broke mine trying to replace the seal, the ring is certainly hard to get off. Does anyone have a parts compressor with a good piston, they want to sell?

    Thanks in advance

    Don't have one myself. Stumbled across this online though, not sure if it will help: https:// x8r. co. uk/land-rover-discovery-3-4-range-rover-sport-air-compressor-repair-kit-hitachi-end-cap

    All the best.

    Kudos to you for attempting to repair the hitachi.

    I took mine apart and put in new desiccant and seals, and it was 10x worse afterwards haha.
    Ended up springing for the AMK. Expensive, but worth it.
