John Deere air compressor PRV won't hold

Hello,


I have a small John Deere portable gas air compressor. It should be reaching about 100psi but the PRV opens up at about 70. I installed a new PRV that is rated for 115 so now I'm stumped. And help would be appreciated. Thanks!

You're saying the 115 psi valve blows at 70? or even at 100psi?

I think maybe your gauge is broken.

Or possibly your tank is full of water and high pressure pulses from the pump are blowing it.
