My craftsman air compressor #919176820 2 HP 12 gallon 200 max psi will not compress over 125 psi


If your compressor is oil-less type, most likely pressure is leaking past piston ring. To verify, remove cover to expose bottom of cylinder (unplug compressor and let out all air). With flashlight, examine the upper-most part of the cylinder (turn motor by hand till piston is at top of stroke). If top of cylinder is scratched, then pressure is leaking past.
For many years now, stores are in a race to have more HP and PSI to attract customers. Customer is really the loser because components used to make the units can not handle the higher pressure. Normally small 115v compressors are set to cut out at 125psi and larger two stage units will cut out at 160psi. Small compressor set to 200psi makes for short lived compressor. Could be compared to driving your car at 100mph all day every day. Longest life is attained when unit is being used at about 60 to 75 % of capacity.
To allow your compressor to reach cutout pressure and keep working for a while, lower cutout to 120psi (pressure switch may be adjustable). To restore to 200psi, replace cylinder/ ring.
If your compressor is oil type, suspect leaking reed valves.

I would like the head bolt torque specs, just to retorque after startup


to be honest I always just snugged them down. Very seldom used a torque wrench. You need to check these often due to the fact that between the cylinders is a weak place for the head gasket. If you do blow one get you some garlock or similar gasket material and make a gasket. will work better and last longer.

What are are the tork spec on the clyinder head bolts


Torque setting for that cylinder head would be around 20 ft/lb and about 30% less if the bolt threads are lubricated before insertion.

T30 model 242 Safety relief valve pops off at 50-60 lbs pressure. Put on a new one and still the same problem. Don't know what to look for next. Normal cut out is at 150-175. Thanks


From want you are describing sounds like the high pressure valves are leaking in the HP Head. there are 2 safeties on this unit . If the safety that's lifting is between the low and high pressure cylinders it's hp valves leaking. If the tank safety is lifting at 50-60 psi It should be replaced. It is a 200 psi safety.

My compressor charges up to 60 PSI. It keeps on running but will not charge over 60PSI. I feel or see no leaks. Why?


Reed Valves in cylinder head. Pull head off and order Valve Kit through Campbell Hausfeld. Phone number etc is on internet.

Drops compressiom from 120-60 psi after 3 new pressure switches


When the pressure switch fails the comperssor will overpressure to the point of safety release at about 150 - 160 psi. It sounds as if your compressor is not producing enough pressure to cycle off at 120 and just keeps running. This happens when air is leaking from fittings or worn cylinder / reed valves. Don't worry, with some simple tests we will find the actual problem. I am assuming that your compressor is oilfree type. If there are leaks the compressor may not reach set pressure. I use soapy water on all connections and on the head/headvalve (remove plastic covers to get to all parts that may leak) while compressor is running. Make repairs as necessary. If still low pressure, while compressor is running and has reached max obtainable pressure (in your case 60 lbs), carefully place finger over intake port hole (remove filter). If the compressor is pumping normally but leaking there will be ample suction at intake and cause the compressor to speed-up when intake is obstructed with finger. If you feel plenty of suction and no visible (soapy water) leaks, then the problem is probably the cylinder /ring is not correctly seating /scratched and air is leaking past cylinder. Make sure that the cylinder /piston ring is properly aligned and that the lip on the vinyl ring is up toward the head. On oilfree compressors you can examine the cylinder by pushing the piston all the way up, then look for scratches neer top of cylinder. If scratched, pressure is leaking past cylinder, install cylinder kit. If you do not feel suction but rather air blowing out of the intake, (do this test when tank has reached 60 psi) then the problem is the headvalve plate/reed valves are leaking. The reeds must seal perfectly on their seats and not be bent or have obstruction. Replace as necessary. If reeds or headgasket is leaking the discharge air will be very hot. Only one other thing to check and that is the intank check valve. Easy to check. Run compressor till you have about 50+ lbs in the tank then unplug compressor. Carefully loosen the inlet hose at checkvalve and listen for air leaking out of tank. (check valve is the brass valve at tank) If leaking replace checkvalve. Use caution when removing head to try and save the gaskets. If you have oil type pump, and no air leaks (soapy water test) suspect reed valves/valve plate. Good luck on your repair and email if you have other question.

Craftsman 3.5 hp portable air compressor keeps blowin head gasket


I would say the head or block is warped. Use Majic Marker to cover the mating surfaces , the head can be rubbed on a flat surface like a cast iron table saw to find the high spots, or the head can be rubbed on the block.
Careful work with a good flat file will remove the high spots.
The torque value sounds low even for an aluminum block, you could check with a small engine shop to get their opinion.
