Atlas Copco air compressor - can't get it to run

Help. I tried to fire off my tow behind Atlas Coco air compressor made a pop now I can't get it to run without starting fluid


I have a Copco Atlas tow behind diesel air compressor about 1997 maybe a 2002 I went to turn it back on without having the air bled all the way out and made a little pop and then it wouldn't start again the only way I can get it to fire off now it's worth a shot of starting fluid what could this be? Please help

Yeah, that might explain it (the popping) if it doesn't run after starting fluid.

Hopefully whatever it is is simple...

I Would take a guess and say that something happened to set the timing off and that could be a real issue if that's what it is. I would suggest getting it checked out.

Unclear.

Are you saying you can get it running on starter fluid? And then it's otherwise OK?

Or what?
