Excellent!

Glad you got it. But only 105psi?

Anyway, maybe a long term report later to let us know if it holds up.

Sounds good, though.

Thanks for the info,

Well The Central Pneumatic 94734 is up and running in fine form. Holds and shuts off at 105PSI.

First the condition: Would only generate and hold 40PSI.

Second the research:
Thanks Bill for this site.

Third the analysis: Some "puffing" from the intake port (air cleaner removed) Flash light and magnifying glass reveal bits of gasket in the intake chamber.

Fourth: NO Parts Available anywhere for Central Pneumatic model 94734 Air Compressor. Only the faint at heart give up.

Research some more.

Looks like a Husky air compressor has SOME similar features. Bought Gasket Kit E100959 and Reed Valve(2) E100229 from Master Tool Repair. Disassembled the Valve Plate from the Head. Sure enough the gasket had been compromised between the high pressure and low pressure sides of the Head and Valve Plate.

I stoned all surfaces. Installed new metal gasket and Reed Valves at Valve Plate. Used #3 Permatex to assemble a new gasket between the Head and the Valve Plate. Installed STEEL flat washers between soft aluminum Head and head bolts. Bolts already had lock washers which had been torqued into the soft head.

With the new STEEL washers in place, I torqued the 4 head bolts to 10 ft lbs.


Let unit sit for a few hours, then powered it up. Once again, Thanks Bill, hope someone else saves their compressor from the junk pile for about $20.00.

Regards, Vince

Will cut glued down head gasket off cylinder. Make new gasket and try again. Will advise success or failure. Thanks, Vince

The manufacturer is a mystery, probably in China.

If you're lucky, it's just a head gasket and you can make one. Otherwise, you're out of luck unless someone has found something close enough to work.

I'm with Bill, but also curious about that board - what's on it? Maybe you can send a pic, and maybe it's repairable.

Rickey, not that they will likely have it, but Harbor Freight is your first choice.

Although, since this compressor is selling new right now for $59.99, it were me, I'd buy a new one, and keep the old for spare parts.
