SOURCE: Craftsman 3.5 hp portable air compressor keeps blowin head gasket

I would say the head or block is warped. Use Majic Marker to cover the mating surfaces , the head can be rubbed on a flat surface like a cast iron table saw to find the high spots, or the head can be rubbed on the block.
Careful work with a good flat file will remove the high spots.
The torque value sounds low even for an aluminum block, you could check with a small engine shop to get their opinion.

Probably would not hurt to check the bolts ... I would expect a little weeping in this application

Testimonial: "Looks right with needing to tighten the bolts and check for leaks. I'll torque to 14-16 lbs-ft like the manual says."

SOURCE: We've purchased a Kobalt 60 Gallon, Volt 208-240,

Your compressor is designed to be used in a shop situation (not portable) and is usually wired to a switch box similar to how your central air condenser is wired. It can however be wired with a short cord to a 220v plug. Your compressor motor is most likely wired to the pressure switch so all that you need do is to connect your pigtail from the pressure switch to the wall. You can buy all the parts that you will need at Lowes. You will notice that your motor has two wires going thru the contacts of the pressure switch. The inside cover of the switch will clue you in to wiring but if it does not have an illustration just match the black to black and white to white (110 v lines) and green to the ground screw at the pressure switch. Here is a good web site for another view: http://www.ehow.com/how_5041165_wire-air-compressor.html

266549_300.jpg This is the most popular switch used on compressors but may not be exactly what you pressure switch looks like. You will need to determine how the contacts transfer power across the terminals. Lets number the terminals from left to right 1,2,3,4. On this switch notice how power crosses from 1 to 2 and from 3 to 4. You can determin how power is transfered on your switch by using meter. On this switch, leads from motor (load) would be connected to 1 and 4 and line in ()would be connected to 2 and 3. Determine with meter which leads from your pigtail are 115v each. Pigtails have either 3 or four wires depending on your wall plug configuration. You will only need the two 115v lines (connected to 2 and 3) and a ground wire connected to green screw. Under the cap of the pressure switch, there should be a wiring diagram to assist you for your particular switch. Good luck

What kind of oil for kobalt 221565 60 gallon


ordinary engine oil 10/30 or 16 oz synthetic oil ( lowes)
There are compressor oils on the market but as the most it has to do is lubricate the bearings and cylinders , engine oil is quite sufficient to do the job as it has all the additives needed to reduce wear , rust and inhibit moisture from the air compression
if it runs 12 hours a day 7 days a week then there will be a service schedule that you should be aware of but if it is just a home operation then every year or two would be adequate for a service

How do you replace the head gasket

Kobalt 221565 air compressor. Has external oil leak and air leak at head gasket. Leaking oil in to out let air and the valve bleeder under switch will not quit exhausting air while motor is off.


"bleeder under switch will not quit exhausting air while motor is off"
This is an indication of a bad check valve... the Nut-like fitting where the air enters the tank is really the check valve. Half of it is hidden, sticking down into the tank. Oil in the outlet air is most commonly an overfill or use of improper, detergent oil(standard motor oil). Could be also that the piston rings are clogged up with burnt oil. Sounds like you need to remove the pump head to replace a gasket anyway. Remove the valve plate also and clean. Spray carb cleaner down around the piston/cylinder, work the piston back and forth, spray some more. Change your oil using 30w non- detergent oil or synthtic non-foaming 20-50w. .

HOW TO FIX A BLOWN HEAD GASKIT?


Buy a gasket kit for the upper end. Remove the valve cover intake and exhaust manifolds. Remove the head bolts. Remove head and clean up block from old gasket material. Take the head to a machinist and make sure that it is not warped. If it is warped either replace the head with a new one or have it machined true. Install new gasket and get torque specs with new head bolts and follow torque sequence using the correct torque specs. Clean exhaust, intake and valve cover of old gaskets. install new gaskets and torque according to specifications.

Intake to head bolt torque


Intake bolt torque is 11-14 foot pounds. Note:
to torque bolts & nuts, start in center using
crisscross pattern working outward. And as Far as the sealant goes, you shouldn't need any additional sealant since the new gasket has sealant.(just make sure both surfaces are clean an free of oil.) sometimes if the head or the block show signs of pitting on the matteing surfaces then you could use a litttle of that cooper spray gasket to coat the new gasket.
