Air compressor pumps up to 175 psi kicks off but will not unload pressure off pistons .


It did at first about a year ago approx. would like to know where to check and clean and adjust.

Also oil pressure is 30 psi at the end of dial and once or twice I had no oil pressure at start up so loosen bolt on side of oil pump and oil pressure back up and resnug it tight. Oil level good in Crankcase

Thanks John

At least some were Quincy pumps. You might check out the quincy manuals here:

Might at least give a clue where to look...
