loud noises on my 2 hp / 20 gallon electric compressor?
(Rialto, calif, usa)
Is it possible that one of the pistons is hitting the cover plate of my 2 hp/20 gallon electric compressor? I took the plate off and ran a staight edge across the top (while piston was at top dead center). I noticed that one of the pistons rose a hair higher than the other. In fact, it cleared the opening and was about 1/32 above the rim of the casing. Is this enough to cause loud banging noise?
