Cummins doesnt have a head gasket rebuild kit for my compressor

So I cant afford 1200 for a new compressor. Can anyone recommend another avenue or perhaps give me some insight as to what you would do?

I would check with Fleet Pride, Napa, Carquest and TRP parts.
They should have a rebuilt compressor or parts. More than likely
the compressor is not made by Cummins but by Bendix or one
of the other brake manufacturers. Just remember that there is
no single right answer to any problem and creative thinking
usually trumps all things.

There should be a tag on compressor with make, model and serial number. Cummins doesn't make compressors. As was said it's probably a Bendix. Think truck. If there is a TruckPro near you they carry rebuilts. You will need make, model and serial number anyway.
