JobSmart air compressor Shroud removed
I took my JobSmart air compressor apart today because it can only get up to 50 psi. I have to assume the input reed valve was not closing all the way. It was somewhat corroded and dirty. Now I need new gaskets, but I don't know my model number. It is 10 gal purchased Aug 7, 2010. Completely different from current ZJ3040SA.
If you have the old gasket, Don, you likely can pick up some high heat gasket material from an auto parts outlet. Cut the new material using the old as a guide.
If you destroyed the old gasket when disassembling the pump, over the gasketed surface with a sheet of paper and use the side of a pencil lead, moved lightly and rapidly over the surface, to trace the gasket path, and use that sheet as your master to cut out a new gasket.
That is, of course, unless some kind visitor leaves a comment with where you can acquire an OEM gasket.
