    If cooling isn't the issue (seems like it could be) could there be high resistance in the power cord, esp. near where it terminates to the compressor? I had a hot water heater once that sorta melted the wire about two inches back where it connected to terminal screws, cut that back and all good.

    Has a 10 gauge to the wall about 6' long and wall is wired with 12 ga New 10 Ga plug and wire was stripped back. 90 weight is for compressors, I read it on the internet!

          Well the EAA fly in has begun. Just had a group of 30 warbirds fly over. 2 quick pics. Sounds so nice on a Sunday morning while on the deck with coffee.

                One cup done...Had to re-read the problem after brain woke up some. I don't recall exactly how it works, but there is a valve that keeps pressure in tank so the pump is not running against the full backpressure. If not holding, I believe it will cause exactly what you described.

                  Thats the check valve it is new and holding, no back leaking when I crack the hose.

                      The Corsairs are still my favorite! Love the gull wing and nothing on earth sounds like all those pistons in rotary configuration.
