I have pic related. It is broken and won't build pressure past 100 psi, and motor won't cut off. I have already bought a replacement. What is worth salvaging off of this thing, versus just scrap metal?
I had thought about this. I was thinking of mounting it somewhere and building a shop system with one of those iron pipe condensation radiator setups. I tell myself I don't have room right now, but then I tell myself that shouldn't be enough of a reason to scrap metal the thing.
There are a few problems you could have but it's probably in the valve plate. These compressors have cheap reed valves and they tend to crack on the discharge side. You can probably find a valve plate kit online for pretty cheap and the head will only have 4 bolts holding it on. Fix it up OP
