Information on a Consolidated pneumatic cps85

I’m looking for a manual or some info on a 1986 consolidated pneumatic cps85 fast tow compressor. I think there is something wrong with pressure regulating valve as it starts under load and doesn’t cut back throttle when pressure has been reached. I don’t know much about it and would appreciate any help in identifying and fixing the problem.

Regulator, or throttle control?

I'm going to guess that's the correct designation, and I find nothing on it, - but still 85 seems low, usually this sort of thing is 185.

It's a screw type, correct?

Anyway, you say "it starts under load and doesn’t cut back throttle when pressure has been reached"

Does the pressure then keep rising, then? Then what happens? Or do you shut it down?

Thanks.

Oh, can you get some pix of the thing, close enough to show some detail, but at the same time show the overall layout? That would helpful, to say the least.
