road compressor wont build beyond 6bar - engine will not rev up

by john coleman
(cork ireland)

want to use compressor for sand blaster but can not get it up to7 bar reaches 9bar until you open valve drops to between 5 to 6 bar throttle opens up but engine will not rev up

________________
John, that suggests to me that our throtte valve or throttle valve linkage is suspect, yet I do not use nor have experience working with this type of compressor.

We both will have to wait and see if a knowledgeable user can help.

Cheers,

Bill

The pipe or the hose?

What kind of hose?

Might be good if you could start a new page with pix.

Please define "too hot".

It's normally quite hot as in 100-150 degrees...

Engine shuts off after running a short time

by Aimee LaCroix
(St. Pauls NC)

Wisconsin engine. Lindsay Compressor. 55 cfm. This Compressor is from the early 70s.

Lately it has been shutting off after a short time unless you choke it.

If you clean the carburetor it runs one complete time but after being shut off it will not stay running.

With it being so hot here we thought it maybe getting too hot. So we took the top off. Note it is air cooled.

Have changed fuel filter, switched to super gas, changed gaskets.

Just don't understand it ran perfect yesterday morning 2 hours later stayed running 5 minutes.
