Glue pump gasket in?

by Sam
(JAX)

Won't build pressure past 60PSI.


Took compressor apart first time and found gasket blown out between reed valve chambers.

Made a gasket and it worked fine for about 2 hours.

Then started doing same thing again. Think it has blown gasket again. Wondering if I should glue the new one in place and if so what would work best.

head gaskets ( ?)
by: Doug in s.d.ca.

It could be a cracked or warped head or plate, but since you got it to work for a while, glueing sounds like a reasonable thing to try.

Use whatever they have at the local auto parts store for sealing head gaskets - you need the high temp stuff.

Let us know how it goes, please.

Good luck.
