VT6122 will not build pressure
Compressor is model VT6122 which is discontinued; most parts no longer available.
Disconnecting the discharge line there is good discharge.
I suspect the check valve. Removed it from the tank but I am no smarter now than before.
EBay has a check valve w/correct #CV220301AJ. Two available; should I buy one??? If not the check valve, what could the problem be?
It always worked well and built pressure, then I removed the top plate to check the intake filter which was clean. Naturally the gasket disintegrated so I used Permatex to seal it back up.
With the top plate off I see both reed valves very rusty on the top; don't know about the bottoms.
After reassembly it no longer pressurizes the tank, but again, plenty of air pressure present when the copper discharge line is disconnected.
Any comments or advise will be GREATLY appreciated. House painting job coming up. Tom in Vt.
