I was not getting any pressure build up on my california air compressor, so I bought the whole cylinder kit, but it did not come with directions and the valve kit is all a part and my question is do you know how it should go together. here is a picture of it

Not sure what you need. The parts go together along the lines connecting them.

You'll likely need a ring compressor to get the piston into the cylinder. You may find whatever tools you need at an automotive store.

If that's daunting, you might want to take it to a small motor (like lawnmower or motorcycle) shop and have them do it.
