Quincy 80 gal QT5 pump wont turn and blows circuit breaker
(Fort Collins, CO)
Quincy QT 5 series air compressor
I try to on my Quincy 80 gal QT5 air compressor this morning and it hummed and blew the breaker. Tried again and same thing obviously.
I called Quincy and they had me take off the belt and see if it was the motor or pump.
Motor works fine.
When trying to turn the wheel from the pump it would stick about every half turn. Took off the top and could see the pistons. As I turn the wheel and the pistons pass each other on the middle of the stroke is where the "stick" comes from.
I can't see any obvious problems inside or out .
All I really know is that the wheel wont turn freely. How big of a problem is it to actually take the shaft out? Should I just take it somewhere, or do I really want to get into breaking it all down?

quincy 216 how to use a gas engine
Any ideas on how to make a quincy 216 work with a gas engine? I have the engine and compressor all ready to go but I really need to get some kind of unloader set up on it. Can I use the unloaders in the head to cut out when the pressure gets to 100 or do I need a external unloader? Thanks for any help
Hi Mark... happy to post this for you. It's a bit more mechanical than air related, so it's not my expertise.
I do know that your unloader will have to adjust the throttle so that when the compressor reaches cut out the motor idles downs, and then revs up when the cut in tank pressure is reached.
I think I may put together a forum on gasoline and diesel powered compressors for the folks that use them.
