Can the air pressure on the regulator be increased so that the dust created on top of your work is actually blown away?

Hello. The air regulator is part of the lower pulley assembly. Check the entire length of the air hose and remove any kinks or pinches in it. If the belt is loose and/or slipping, the air will not be generated at the desired rate. Check that. And here is a free downloadable owner manual in case you do not have one http://content.powermatic.com/manuals/M_1791216K.pdf

99 tarurus stop getting fuel.


Could be a fuel pressure regulator or lost signal from crank sensor that gives inaccurate data.
The crank sensor is responsible for sending data to increase fuel pressure as a function of increased RPM. If the RPM reads low, then fuel pressure will be low.
Check fuel pressure.
Thinking that air pressure is affecting pressure regulator and compensating for a weak regulator diaphragm.
Would be interested in final fix of your problem.

Tip

Give you air filter a breather


The air filter on an engine is very important to the operation and the life of the engine. It protects the engine from unecessary wear due to grit and dust and keeps the air intake and fuel induction components clean. However, in doing so, it becomes clogged with the dirt that it stops and eventually restricts the amount of air available for the combustion mixture, increasing the fuel in a finely balanced ratio and increases fuel consumption.
To extend the life of an air filter, avoid driving directly behind a vehicle throwing up a lot of dust, let him get away so that you have clean air or pass him as quickly as you can do so safely. If you come across dust being blown across the road in front of you, relax your foot on the pedal to close the throttle and minimise the air being drawn into the intake, coast for those few seconds. Use this technique when vehicles passing from the front throw up dirt on gravel roads etc. and avoid trucks heavily loaded with sand that blows off the top of their load.
It does not sound like much, but can make a considerable difference in vehicle performance, efficiency, life and running costs.

Tips on changing orifice size on AC or heatpump


Tips on changing orifice size on air conditioners and heat pumps.
A smaller orifice will create these changes
1 - Takes more refrigerant charge to get the same superheat
2 - Increases capacity
3 - Decreases Energy Efficiency Ratio
4 - Increases Head pressure
5 - Increases sub cooling
6 - Reduces suction pressure
7 - Increases Watts and Amps

The regulator is not getting pressure and will not allow me to actually use the compressor. the tank pressurizes but is unable to expel in a useful measure. it can hold pressure, and be purged but nothing...


Hi jonuschak...
Your problem sounds like it is the pressure regulator faulty.
Try to adjust the air pressure regulator up and down in pressure by turning the knob one way and then the other. Sometimes this will free up a stuck regulator.
You can also tap the sides and bottom of the air regulator with a hammer and it will help get the air going again, that is because sometimes the needle of the regulator sticks and will not allow the regulator to regulate the air pressure. If that does not work then you will do the following
Remove and repair if possible the pressure regulator. If it cannot be repaired then it is faulty and not allowing the air flow need to do your job.

Kenmore lp gas sealed burner stove,when opening or closing the oven door the top burners decrease in flame size and go out frequently.


This seems like a pressure regulator / flow problem. If you are running more than one appliance from bottled gas this can occurr if the supply pipe is not of sufficient size. When 'wafting the door' you are increasing air flow to the oven burners which in turn will consume more gas to balance the burn, this starves other burners that are running at the time.
Cure; increase regulator pressure (remove the foil cover to expose the screw) with the top burners alight adjust the screw 1/4 turn at a time until the flames are bright blue at heart and organge tipped. Increase as much as you can without the falme distorting away from blue/orange. If this doesn't cure it you may need to increase the size of your supply pipe to 15mm so that the volume of gas is greater and then split it off to normal lpg pipe to each apliance thereby creating a more even flow of supply. Often a system using say heating and gas fire is perfectly fine but add another appliance like a cooker or change your cooker to one which has more powerful burners and you can expose weaknesses in the flow system.

How do I adjust the pressure on an old Northstar Pressure washer. Honda 18.0 HP, GX610 V-Twin


The following link will give you great troubleshooting for all pressurewashers. http://www.pressurewasherservice.ca/serv02.htm

There are several way to increase pressure. Primary way is to turn the pressure regulator knob in the direction to increase tension on the spring. Pressure regulator is located on the pump (or very neer) and usually has a large spring. Sometimes the spring is hidden under a twist knob. If the adjuster seems to be already turned to max then you may need to just change the pressure tip. The tip/nozzle is actually where the pressure is created by restricting the flow of water thru a very small opening. Use a new tip of the same gpm flow that is required by your machine. 18 hp machine has potential for very high pressure and high gallons per minute. Use trouble shooting guide above for more information. Good luck

I have an older Craftsman Air Compressor and the knob valve to reg the pressure seems to not be working. Can I replace it?


It is getting increasingly more difficult to obtain replacement parts for older compressors. If your regulator failed at a fairly high pressure adjustment, say around 100-120 lbs, you could just leave the old regulator in place and add a regulator when needed to one of the quick connects. Purchase a generic pressure regulator from Lowes and add quick fittings to easily connect the regulator or remove when not needed. You could also just remove the old regulator and work-in a new generic regulator in its place. Generic regulators sell for $20 - $40. Good luck with your repair.

Air compressor pressure not regulating


Usually you cannot adjust the cut out pressure of the tank/motor itself, this is why they have regulators, which regulates the pressure flowing down the air lines (regulators like these dont regulate actual tank pressure cutout). To regulate air flow using the regulator knob, you actually have to have air flowing through the hose while you make the regulator/pressure adjustments as regulators regulate pressure DOWNSTREAM from the actual regulator itself.. so air flowing through is a must. Attach an air blower or something similar and let air start flowing through the hose. Now turn your regulator knob in the "-" direction to decrease regulated pressure. It is best to bring pressure all the way down to "0" first, then open the regulator up (by turning to the "+" side) and pressure will rise until you get to the desired pressure needed for the air tool in use. The tank pressure will still be between 80-125 PSI as the motor regulates and keeps the pressure in the tank between these values automatically, but your line/hose air flow pressure will remain at the regulated pressure (say 40 PSI or whatever you set using the regulator knob).

Hope that helps and makes sense.

No air pressure at the hose


It sounds like you have trouble with your pressure regulator. Make sure that the knob for the regulator is turned clockwise to increase pressure. If this doesn't work, you may need to replace the regulator.
