Ingersoll Rand 185 shutting down

This air compressor will run for how ever long and then it will just shut down.


Let it sit for a little bit and it will run for how ever long then shut down again.

The fuel system looks fine.

like the others, possible low oil and/or bad oil level/pressure sensor.

185 tow behind air compressor shuts down

The air compressor runs for about 30 seconds then just shuts down like somebody flipped the key switch off. Kind a like the previous guy in the article before me had the same issue.

Coolant / radiators

Filters

Oil separator

Does it quit like it's been shut off, or does it bog down? Possibly injectors.
