IR 242-D stops really fast and makes a loud growling sound.

I have a IR 242-5D two stage 5 HP. Compressor.
It pumps up to 140 PSI. Without a problem.
When it hits it's set point to shut off it stops really fast and makes a loud growling noise.
Are they supposed to stop so abruptly?
Rebuild kit for IR 242 D3 ?
IR Type 30 Model 242 D3
I have a IR Type 30 Model 242 D3 or so the tag says.
I cannot find any info on the D3. Everything I have found is for the A or B 242 models.
Can anyone tell me what the D3 is and will the rebuild kits I have found work in it?
I need a high pressure side rod and wrist pin as the rod end at the piston is egg shaped.
Any info out there?
Thank you, Mark
