motor will not start unless you physically depress the contacts on the starter, but shuts off when released. Replaced both halves of the starter, and the air pressure switch. still wont run

Not sure what you mean by "replaced both halves of the starter", but if you can manually depress the contacts, and it runs, then you need to check the pressure switch circuit. It needs to supply current to the starter coil to work.
