My little air compressor took a dive in the back of my car going around a corner. I lost the filter, it snapped clean off leaving the thread in the side of the head of the pump. After extracting the thread I worked out it was just a 15mm BSP thread. I could work with that and get clean air into my tank again very cheaply.
