An air compressor such as the one that you borrowed is very useful for airing-up tires, connecting a nailer for wood working projects and spray painting with a cup gun. All that you need do is plug it in to a 110v outlet and it will fill with air to capacity. To access the air you will need to plug an air hose into a quick coupler and adjust the air pressure with the knob showing two direction arrow. Unless your friend has included an air assisted water blasting wand that would also connect to a water supply, I do not think that it would be useful for cleaning. I have used a compressor such as this with an air nozzle or air blasting the air conditioner condenser fins and the drain to the evaporator inside the house. It will also be really great for cleaning the mower or any outdoor tool that accumulates oily dust (air filters). With a small sand blasting attachment you could remove old paint from the patio furniture or any wood or metal surface needing a good blasting to make it look like new. Sand blasting would not be practical for house/ deck/ fence because it would take too long and use too much sand; then there would be the sand cleanup. Have fun with the compressor and clean-up projects.
Replace the plugs, don't try to clean them. The proper way to clean plugs used to be to sand blast them. The problem was that bits of sand can remain deep inside the throat of the plug. When the sand breaks free it causes damage to the piston, rings, cylinder and valves. The only safe way to clean them is to blast them with dry ice particles. Cleaning plugs is not a big industry. The equipment required is hard to find and is expensive. You have a lot of money invested in your bike. Spring for a new set of plugs. Please rate my answer. Thanks.
You will have to bleed the rams to get all the air out just crack the hose's open at the connector and have a person help you open the hoses on both sides and try raising the bucket when you get clear fluid coming out close the nuts on the lines then do the same thing for down position. Check hydraulic fluid level to make sure it does not get so low that you put air in the system. Be sure when you are bleeding to pay attention to fluid flow coming out of the rams is it even? If not you may have a hose that has collapsed. To know if it is look at how much fluid flows out of the hose the one with the lest amount of oil is suspect. Next if it still does not raise pull the pressure valve out of the control Block where the arm is for raising it crack the outer locking nut then remove the valve and see if you have a piece of dirt in the valve seat. If you need more help post it here and Give me the Year and model Number for more precise help for this unit.
That's a real pain. Even if you remove the hose, it is hard to clean out. You can get at the pump end of the hose by tilting the machine back and reaching under it. Replace the hose will save a lot of time, or I'd suggest next time you want to clean out your filter do this:
Pull the machine out about 18 inches or so away from the wall and tilt it back until the back rests against the wall. (front feet now up in the air) Now, all the water will be back at the back of the machine and you can remove the filter to clean it out without spilling water.
