Compressor unloader leaking

I removed the check valve and it seems to be working properly but the unloader is continuously leaking. I am not sure on my terminology and part identification. There is a release valve on the switch assm which can be pulled to release air but I am referring to a valve on top of the compressor head which is constantly leaking.

Unloader?

Does it look like this:

Then try removing and cleaning it.

If that fails, then unless it's super cool where you are, it'll probably work OK without it, so just plug it.

Otherwise a google search turns up slews of them.

Good luck.
