Steve, boy, that’s a tough one, and a problem that is a regular one with all the big box store air compressors. They either don’t have parts, or the person at the store sometimes wouldn’t know an air compressor if it jumped off the shelf and bit them!

I know HF does not offer the compressor any more, but if you have not done so already, do contact their service department to see if they can offer an alternative parts kit: For technical questions and replacement parts, please call 1-800-444-3353.

There are postings on this site about how some enterprising folks have used a paint scraper blade to fashion new valves and others about how to source and make gaskets from high heat gasket material.

Let us know how it goes, will you, and sorry I cannot point you to a kit! Can anyone else help?
