Question about Porter Cable Cable 135 PSI, 60 Gal. Oil - Lube Stationary Compressor C7510
I have a model CPLC7060V 60 gallon 135 psi Porter-Cable air compressor. The valve that drains water from the bottom of the tank will not screw open or close. I'm concerned about putting a tool on it and trying to really crank it open to drain the tank. Tried Liquid Wrench to no avail. The valve is very difficult to reach under the tank, so I haven't been religious about draining it. The tank is about four or five years old, and isn't used real often. If I have to replace the entire valve, could someone please give me instructions on how to do it, or how to attempt to get the valve open? Thank you.
I would use an ajustable wrenck to try and open the valve. Being at the bottom and in the water, this is a common occurrence. to replace the valve, there is a Hex nut outer fitting (part of the valve) that you have to remove right by the valve "T" handle. Put a wrench on this and remove the complete valve. It too will be very hard to remove. When you install the new valve, use some anti-seize compound to make future removal easier.
