My compressor Speed Aire Model 12766 2 stage is leaking air from the air filter and around the pipes near the top of the heads.It fills tank to correct pressure but keeps running because it's leaking. Can you tell me whats wrong?

Air leaking from air filter

Air leaking from any reciprocating air compressor intake filter usually indicates that the intake valve is compromised.

A logical assumption is that the pressure valve may be failing to, so a valve plate changeout is in order, as well as new gaskets.

Leaking "around the pipes near the top of the heads" would suggest that fittings are loose.
