the onlay problem with doing it to a fridg compressor is the orignal motor cant cope with the input pressure, and usaly stalls and its not realy safe.

I opened one up (didnt I post pictures of that?) and the reed valve was in the flat plate on top of the cylinder. The flat piston head nearly touches the top plate within like a tenth of a mm.
Dead space is minimal.

How thick is the flat plate and the volume of the space in the hole? What is the dead space of the valve?

Spell check works. :)
