Why is leroi 185 tow behind air compressor shutting off?
I have a Leroi 185 tow behind air compressor.
-to start you have to turn the toggle switch to on.
-the start/run toggle switch to start.
-push in bypass switch and hold.
-while holding bypass switch you push in start switch and it usually starts right up and at that point u let go of start button while still holding bypass for another 20 to 30 seconds and it stays running perfectly.
My problem is once u let go of the bypass button after any amount of time holding it in, it just shuts off. when u press bypass you can hear the fuel pump wanting to engage. I'm not sure what to look for. off the bypass switch is a green and yellow wire which feeds to the fuel pump and a blue wire that goes to some other gauges and then into the harness which i haven't fully tracked down.
The point is after holding the bypass in for a short time u should be able to let go and it stays running. however when u let go of bypass it dies immediately
