How would I turn a 240V workshop air compressor to 12V air compressor, I was given a 240V GMC air compressor (2HP/21L) and thought the tank and gauges are all good so why throw it out, to small for what i need!, So how hard would it be to convert the 240V to 12V OR do I get a 150PSI 12V compressor and connect that to the tank and installed in the back of my GU Patrol.
Thanks

Yep had an idea like that as well, if I couldn't keep the original compressor on it if it couldn't be converted to 12V instead of 240V.

short answer No a 240V AC motor (that is what you have on the GMC compressor) is different to a 12V DC motor, what you need it to be.
