Photo of my defective Airco compressor. Question is what brand it is. It is a Delta Mill system, but I am still looking for a replacement. I did not know there were so many suppliers of compressors. 'S' and 'D' in my opinion stands for 'sinistra and destra', 'left and right' in Italian. Does this mean it is an Italian system?
