I finally have the compressor put back together. Replaced the failed gasket and torqued the head bolts down to 35 foot pounds. Had to replace the regulator valve – I cracked it trying to put the original back on.
There’s still a small leak somewhere that I haven’t been able to find. I’ll have to mix up some more soapy water and get it into all the spots and see if I can figure it out. But it’s such a slow leak, that it won’t matter that much.
It fills up extremely fast and keep up with 7.5 cfm at 125psi.
