Q:

Air Compressor settings

A:

ManageMyLife.com is a great place to find your owner's manual for various products. I understand you are having some difficulties finding yours. Manufacturers stop producing manuals after ten years. This could be the cause of availability. Sometimes the expert can find one that is very similar to yours. You should hear back within two business days. They may also have an answer to your specific question on default setting for the compressor. Thanks for your patience

A:

I can understand how important it is to have the right information on your air compressor. Remove the screws from the plastic shroud on top of the compressor near the air outlet valve. Use a screwdriver to remove the screws. Lift the shroud from the compressor to reveal the upper and lower pressure limiter adjustment screws. The screw closest to you is the lower, the one farthest away is the upper. Turn the compressor on and allow it to charge. Make a note of the pressure on the pressure gauge when the compressor turns off. Pull the air release valve to release pressure from the tank. Look for a metal and plastic valve near the air outlet with a metal pull ring through it. Watch the pressure gauge and make a note of the point at which the compressor turns back on. Consult the tool manual or tool manufacturer's website for the tool you use most often. Look for the optimum pressure range. You may also find this on a printed label on the tool itself. It should indicate the best pressure for operating the tool, for example, "Works best @ 60-120 psi." Psi, which stands for pounds per square inch, is the same measurement you wrote down from the pressure gauge. Adjust the lower limiter control screw by turning it clockwise to increase the pressure, or counterclockwise to decrease it. Adjust the upper limiter control screw in the same way. Recharge the compressor, noting when it kicks off. Release pressure and note when it kicks on. Adjust the screws as needed until the compressor consistently maintains optimum pressure. Replace the shroud on the compressor. Replace the shroud screws and tighten them with a screwdriver. I hope this helps. If you need further assistance, please reply to this thread. Thank you for using Manage My Life.

Thank you for your question.

I will be happy to assist you. I posted an image below that shows the oil drain and fill plugs. Just click on the image to enlarge it. Once you have the oil drained, refill the pump with 30 weight, nondetergent, single viscosity oil to the top thread of the fill hole.

I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance on the air compressor.

Thank you for using Manage my life.

Q:

What is the torque for the rod caps and head bolts on a 919.158230 3hp twin air compressor?

A:

The rod cap bolts should be torqued to 5-7 foot pounds. The head bolts should be torqued 7-10 foot pounds.

There is no sequence for tightening the bolts. It is always a good idea to tighten in a zig zag pattern.
