    About 10 years ago I had a few 5 ton Bristol's that sprung a leak in the little divot where they weld he compressor to the body

    Could have welded it but didn't have the welder with me, but I figured of they can put out shitty equipment let them eat it

    Wow,
    I have never seen a split like that before except on the porcelain connections.
