Where can I get the head gasket, the very thin white gasket inserted into the cylinder head?

Because of this website, I was able to inspect the reeds, they were not cracked or burnt.

However, the air filter plastic housing was broken, the particles were sucked into the cylinder head and pieces of them were all over inside and stopped the cylinder head reed from forming a seal.

I cleaned off all particles - the compressor works like new!!!

Is that different than the o=ring and gasket for changing the valve plate?

This is an oil less, yes?

You'll need to find a comparable ring, as you doubtless have found OEM is unavailable.

They are sized by diameter and cross-section diameter.

Look or an o-ring same size or close. Think metric.

Good luck, and please let us know if you find a suitable one for the benefit of others

Remove cover of Briggs 074003 pressure switch

by Brad hooter

How does the protective cover come off the the pressure switch?

Have a leak next to my pressure relief valve.

I need to check under the cover to see exactly where the leak is. How does the black protective cover come off of a Briggs 074003 brute

I can't see the cover Brad. A picture sure would have helped.

But... if air is flowing out of the pressure switch, then it's probably your tank check valve that's leaking, not the switch.
