thanks again guys for all your help,
shes running prety good at mo,
the air leak i was on about is normal , so ive read about,
changed all filters and new oil, stripped down and cleaned all valves, just a little more tweaking with the pressure valve(not sure of right name for it),and she should be good for another few years yet.
thanks again.

More on the leak thing -

If the TANK pressure is dropping, then that's the check valve, usually right on or very close to the tank - two tubes, a big one from the pump and a small one to the pressure switch, usually.

If it's working, the leak is normal, but lasts maybe a few seconds, and stops, tank pressure remains.

As far as your contactor is concerned, just take it to an electrical supplier, they will have an alternative one for you, they dont cost much.
It is normal for air to "leak" when it reaches pressure, it's blowing down the pressure from the air-end so it wont start under pressure and damage the vanes etc

AKA magnetic starter

Anything with the same or greater ratings and contact count should work.

Unfortunately, I can't make out the stuff on the plate...
