You raise the pressure ... by buying a compressor with a higher pressure output!

    You're welcome ... for nothing! There is no easy but safe way to raise pressure above what such a unit was designed to do, minus wear factors!

    Well they sell regulators I found to raise pressure, Sullair has 100, 125, 150, and 175 psi. You are are wrong.

    I regulator can only REDUCE pressure! A regulator CANNOT INCREASE pressure, unless there is MORE pressure already available, to REDUCE it TO! Can water run uphill? No. And neither can AIR!

    SPECIFICATIONS—125, 130, 49 HP AND 185 JOHN DEERE. 40. 3.4 ...... compressor with an operating pressure range of 100.

100 psi is around the pressure that the engine goes back to idle
it should start to go to fast rpm when the pressure drops to around 75 psi
if it is trying to increase rpm at 100 psi , the engine is under load and that is your problem

Sullair 185 screw compressor

The sullair 185 has a low oil pressure override button that you have to hold in while starting. after the oil pressure builds up(takes about ten seconds) you can release the button and the machine should continue to run.

John Deere will replace the cap for free; they acknowledge the vendor who supplied Briggs & Stratton gas caps provided faulty caps. Call 1-888-228-3068 then 1 (English), 2, 1 and a technician will ask you for model number and Serial Number (which they need to replace the cap). Don't drill a hole in your cap: debris will find a way into the gas tank and end up possibly fouling the engine. Bob from NJ
