Central Pneumatic 67696 No Output

central pneumatic 67696 air compressor
I saw a similar post which was very informative and well written. My model 67696 oil-less compressor was running normally and stopping at 150PSI. When I last used it with a nail gun on my deck, it stopped cycling off that day, and then dropped to 70PSI on both gauges. I purged the air with a nozzle on the hose to 20PSI, and drained the tank as usual. Turned it on again and NO real output, from the drain (you could stop it with a finger over the hole), and zero on the tank pressure gauge with the drain petcock closed.
I tried calling the Harbor Freight C/S number but never got thru to anyone. The parts are in the complete book that came with the unit. I will order the valve assembly, as it is likely the cause of the sudden failure, as the whole piston ring would have to fallen apart to cause such low output. Any ideas how to MAKE or SUBSTITUTE the parts (valve metal fingers, soft piston ring) since they are hard to find? You have a very nice website with independent answers and education which is appreciated!
UPDATE: I just found an identical model and checked that ALL the parts are available under Husky 1506FWH, from masrertoolrepair dot com!
Ordering multiple of whatever failed tomorrow, to keep this tidy unit going for 5-10 more years!
