Most honda engines have an oil sensor that prevents the engine from starting if the oil level is low or oil is dirty. Test coil by disconnecting oil sensor wire. With sensor disconnected coil should fire. If still no fire, check kill wire for short. If still no spark, coil may need to be replaced. enjoy

The air gap for Honda GX160 is 0.016(+-0.008) inches or 0.4mm(+-0.2)mm. Insert a long thickness guage between the flywheel and ingnition coil. Both gaps should be adjusted minullaneously.

INGERSOLL RAND SS3P OVERHEATING OF CYLINDERS


Heat in that location noted is to be expected, but to the degree that it is should be of some concern.

When was the oil changed in the compressor last?

If you are running with a multiviscosity oil, use it only if the manual indicates it. Running straight weight oils, especially in extreme conditions is prudent insurance against failure. If you are running 10W20 for example- run 20 weight instead until regular air temps are below freezing- then the switching to 10 weightshould be a consideration..

The oil sump serves 2 purposes- 1- Coolant. 2-lubrication.

However I think the bearings in in the compressor are needing attention.
More because it sounds like there is an oiling problem in the compressor itself. At an absolute minimum it sounds like the head should be pulled to inspect for galling in the cylinder walls and to look for trace oil on the cylinder wall.

I have a ingersoll rand 30, srats for 20seconds then trips breaker,,,runs great when running


Sounds like the unit is pulling to many amps during start up. Possibilities are: breaker under sized, wire under sized, to long of a run of wire from breaker for wire size,Tank check valve bad. I would check the amps during start up and while running and compare to motor name plate information. Remember at start up the motor may pull 1.5 to 2 times the rated amps on the name plate. Also if this unit has a magnetic starter wire connections may be loose or overloads to small.
