How to replace regulator on husky air scout model 41004

On my air scout the regulator cap, which is threaded to receive the bolt attached to the regulator knob was stripped. It's cheapo metal. I removed that and the knob (which is held onto the bolt with a smaller reverse-threaded screw, and replaced the cap using a larger diameter bolt I place of the knob. Works.

Brand new compressor...air builds in tank but turning the regulator result in no change in the regulated pressure. Tried turning the regulator to make sure it moves freely, and it seems to, but still no...

The regulator has a very strong spring inside causing knob to get harder to turn as you increase the pressure (increase clockwise). If the knob is easy to turn most likely stripped inside. If knob gets tight as you turn then plunger at rear of regulator is stuck. On the back side of the manafold directly opposite the adjustment knob is a small nut housing a plunger. Let out all the air from the tank and remove the nut. Seperate the nut and plunger, lube and re-install. If the regulator knob is stripped you will need to replace the manafold or as a temp fix remove the safety valve (let out air from tank first) and install a tee fitting. On one port of the tee reinstall the safety valve and on second port install quick fitting for full tank pressure (or install aftermarket pressure regulator ).

Look at the underneath side of the knob. Many of these have a square molded into the knob that fits over the square shaped adjusting stem coming out of the regulator. The replacement regulator (if you end up having to replace it) is part #885807 (reference number 30) and is $42.88 Here is the link to the parts breakdown.

The regulator knob is broke. Where can I get a replacement? Replacement parts diagrams do not show the knob as replacement part.

You can't buy the regulator knob as a seperate part, you have to buy the entire manifold; Porter Cable part number N003001. Shop around on parts sites as these cost around $70 plus any shipping and handling. Depending on how often you have to change the regulated pressure output it may not be worth replacing.

How do you utilize the air pressure control knob.

Most air pressure regulator knobs work like a "child-proof" cap on a medicine vial.  It has a spring inside that keeps it dis-engaged from the tooth like gears inside.  To turn the knob you must first pull out or push in the knob.  You should feel some resistance from the spring inside.  As you pull, you will feel the knob seat into the "teeth" inside.  Then you can turn the knob and change the air pressure supplied.   Note:  most air regulator valves work in the opposite manner of regular water valves.  Turning the knob clockwise should increase the air pressure... counter clockwise should decrease the pressure.       I hope this solution will bring you success.   Best Regards,  Michael Mittelsdorf
