Re: Rehabilitating and (re)Installing a Spectra Newport 400

The big brown truck brought my 2 Shurflo motors then the USPS mail carrier had my heat sinks. So, now its time to source a pair of 12 volt fans, and what looks like a short section of 4 inch SCHED 40 PVC pipe.

Anyone got a "fix" on the fan details I should seek out? Obviously 12V, but any flow rate/Cfm you might recommend? The cheap ones (eBay) tend to be 20-30 Cfm (less than $10) and the ones that are 60+Cfm are $30-ish. As I mock it up in card stock, looks like an 80mm fan.

Now for plumbing pieces, hose, Jubliee Clips, etc. I don't see the Quick Disconnect in my parts pile. The check valve is there. Is there a reasonable substitute?

Any and all advise welcomed. Much appreciate the encouragement too. This is coming together with all this great help!

Thanks -- Jim
