sullair 30 hp will only make 80psi, help!

I believe my sullair 30 hp should make 120+ psi when dead headed, it will generate between high 70,s low 80 psi.


New fluids, clean fluid and intake filter, normal temp.

Any suggestions? It should have plenty of life yet.

The compressor is an older 1989 had been re-conditioned a few years ago and used little since then. I will take the suggestion and let you know if it helps, Thanks.

Checked oil separator and scavenger tube?

What model? Screw, right?

100PSI may be normal, depending.
