Sullivan-palatek 165 diesel stalls under a load

have a Sullivan-paltek 165 diesel compressor, bought it used and has ran good, it just started acting up, seems like once its time to start sand blasting it shuts down the motor.

I've changed fuel filter, fuel pump, air filters, put injector cleaner in fuel and have anti-gelling additive in tank. I think that maybe a sensor is bad????

We are having the same problem after blasing for 10-15 minutes. We have replaced all sensors and the fuel pump. Did you find a solution?

Can you tell if the engine is trying to speed up as demand starts?

Could be pressure sensor is not asking for more power...=air.
