The porter cable compressor is equipped with a pressure relief valve. Mine has a ring attached to it. When you pull out on the valve, it releases all the pressure stored in the tank. Try pushing that valve back in, or if faulty replace it.

I believe you have a head valve or piston ring problem. The parts you replace are suppose to leak. It is a safety feature that doesn't allow the motor to burn up before the pump warms up. Kind of like a soft start feature. If you look on the breakdown part number 107 Kit Valve Plate is what you need to inspect. Sounds like your valve plate is either worn or damaged. If you go into the pump you will have to get part 103 also which is a gasket kit. Or you can try to salvage the old gaskets.
If the valve plate is ok you will need to inspect the rings that go around the pistons. Some times you will get one that gets brittle and breaks off scarring the cylinder. Look for these two things, I am pretty sure one of them is the problem with your compressor.

According to Porter-Cable (Delta) themselves, they had lots of bad regulators on these compressors. I'm waiting for one myself. Same issue

It is a simple drain valve with NPT (pipe) thread. Most likely either 1/8" or 1/4" NPT threads. Any drain valve with the same thread size should work fine. You may also find one at an auto parts store as they are used on automotive radiators too.

You only need to adjust your regulator normally one time...that is the first time you use it to set it to the pressure you want.
Try to rotate the regulator knob clockwise, that is the way you adjust the amount of air pressure you will want.
If the gauge still does not move try changing the gauge, it may be faulty.
Please take time to rate me thumbs up
