These non lubricated compressors have a "plastic" piston ring that eventually wears out. The ring is not available as an individual part. You need to purchase a piston and cylinder kit and possibly a new valve plate as well.

Have a 919.167240 that won't go over 60psi. No leaks, the check valve is working. Motor keeps running and I need to shut it down manually.I removed the compressor and checked the head and housing,


If all is well where you say it is the next thing I'd check is the condition of the piston & cylinder then the valve plate. On oilless compressors it's common for the ring on the piston to get worn or have peices come off. It may or may not damage the cylinder but it will be able to compress air until the pressure is too high for the leak past the piston to overcome. Also if the valve plate got overly hot the reed valves may warp or break off, again letting the pump compress air only to a point then the internal leak will prevent it from getting high enough for the motor to stop and cool down.

My air compressor won't get past 60psi but keeps running and isn't leaking air anywhere when I shut it off


Your problem lies with the valve plate and/or piston & cylinder. If one or more reed valves on the valve plate are cracked, bent or broken; pressure will only build to a certain point. If either the ring on the piston is damaged or the cylinder is badly scored it will not be able to compress air beyond a certain point. Unless the tank pressure reaches 120psi to 130psi the pressure switch will never turn the motor off.

Seems like 80-85psi is too much supply pressure. I would adjust the pressure switch on your well pump. If it's a 1 horse pump or so- you should be able to go buy a new pressure switch that is pre-set for about $20.

Porter-cable compressor stops and restarts at about 60psi


You prolly have a leaky gasket in the main valve. Air is leaking and causeing it not to go about 60psi, you probably have it set to reach a high PSI but since the leak is not allowing it reach above 60 it keeps cycling trying to get above it

Check the fuel pressure at the shredder valve. You should have 60psi to 65psi with the fuel pump primed and engine not running. Once the engine has been started, there should be a 5psi drop. Make sure the fuel filter has been replaced and that the fuel pump is making at least 60psi. Anything less or more then 65psi will not activate the fuel injectors, the other thing to is that the spider injection system on the vortec are know to go bad and you may have to replace the system. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to help you get your S-10 running 100% again.
