Question about Air Tools & Compressors
Checked oil slingers and they are intact. Noted cylinders seem to be very dry. Cylinders and pistons are a golden color but not burnt. Checked reed valves and all look good and function as they should. Checked check valve going into tank and it functions. Was sticking but freed up with a little cleaner. Tightened belt. Compressor will run one cycle but starts slow down around 100 psi but will make it to 130psi and shut off. Cylinder temps are aound 380-400 degrees. Head temps are well over 400 degrees. Next cycle the compressor will slow down and come to a complete stop before reaching 100 psi. Smoke coming from air intake. Let cool and pulled thru by hand. Hard to turn at top of the stroke. Started compressor and sprayed PB Blaster into intake and compressor sped up for a few seconds but then slowed back down to a full stop. Suspect incorrect clearance between pistons and cylinders not allowing for expansion? Damaged piston rings not allowing oil to get to pistons and cylinders? Looking for suggestions. Anyone have specs on cylinder wall to piston clearance?

IF IT HAS BELTS THE BELTS COULD HAVE BEEN LOOSE AND SLIPPING.. MOTOR COULD BE GETTING HOT DUE TO TOO SMALL OF CORD OR SMALL GAUGE DROPCORD. INTANK CHECK VALVE COULD BE GETTING CLOGGED NOT ALLOWING AIR TO PASS THRU IT. UNHOOK DISCHARGE LINE FROM HEAD TO THE TANK, THIS WILL ALLOW PUMP TO RUN UNDER NO STRESS AND SEE WHAT HAPPENS.
