CAP60P-OR Compressor still does not build any pressure after replacement of both valves and gasket.


Following advice given on other posts, I inspected the reed valves and found the three in the valve cyl were damage.

I ordered new, along with gasket and intake reed valve and when received I replaced them and put compressor back together. turned on and still not building pressure. Don't know where to go from here.

Thanks

Fixed CAP60P-OR - not!

Chuck, I sense a bit of frustration in your post. Not surprising given how much work you have put into fixing your CAP 60P-OR Bostitch.

It's also really hard to tell from the exploded diagram I uploaded (source: http://servicenet.bostitch.com/Products/Detail/CAP60P-OF) where the intake or pressure side of the pump are.

Please run the compressor and check and see if you are getting really good suction at the intake, and good pressure out the pressure side of the pump. If you are not getting both, then, unfortunately, something in your reassembly may have gone awry.
