hi thanks for the website its great


i have a single piston RYOBI air compressor 50l 2.0hp

The problem I'm having is when it is filling there is an air leak from under the power switch (the pipe from the tank to the diaphragm)

i replaced the valve and tried to fill the tank then the piston jammed up and there was air coming out of the oil seal cap can any one help with links and pics to help me fix this issue..

and i also wanted to ask for the correct configuration for setting the reed valves is it 1 reed to one slot or both slots to a single reed

That's for the Ryobi Airwave RA-C2550-G.

I only see one hole for the reed, so not sure if this is the unit you actually have.

Good luck.
