919.167783 compressor will not build pressure
by Chad Zeilenga
I've read through many of the posts here and can't seem to figure out my air compressor issue.
It started with the compressor struggling to reach the 150PSI cut-off.
So I inspected and found the cylinders were heavily scored and the rings had taken a set.
I installed ring & cylinder kit K-0650 & K-648 to resolve for both the HLP & HHP.
After putting back together with new gaskets & o-rings the compressor would only reach 30PSI and then just keep running.
It never shuts off.
I next inspected the reed valves and found some very small gaps between them. Although I didn't feel any air moving out of intake, I ordered new valve plates and installed those with a fresh gasket that I cut-out from material. Put it all back together and torqued it down and still have same issue.
With the compressor off, it does not bleed down or leak. Just sits at 30PSI. I felt near the Pressure Relief Valve while it was running and couldn't feel any air escaping.
At this point, the only thing I can think of is the Choke valve is not sealing properly.
Is there anything else it could be?
