Hi, I just was given my Grandfathers old air compressor, and it still works but it doesn't want to build pressure past 60psi.

I'm contacting you more for just information about the model air compressor I have.

I've looked over the internet and I'm not finding much on what seems to be Model IZ 796.

I'm going to include some pictures, I want to restore this unit and also fix the issues with the pressure, but mostly I want to restore it because it's been in the family for 40+ years apparently.

Any information you can find would be greatly appreciated!

I too have come across an old Speedaire compressor (Model # IZ796). I just began rebuilding it. Any advice where i can get replacement parts or manuals would be appreciated.

I'll keep you posted

Hi Chris. Your post and photos are live on the site shortly, and you can be sure if folks have information on this venerable old Speedaire compressor, they will add info.

Meantime, that the compressor doesn't pump up past 60 PSI is not an unusual problem for an older compressor. See the troubleshooting page on this site about air compressors that don't build pressure for some tips.
