Today, my coil for the compressor finally arrived! I have had many threads about the spark issue. Now, it is fixed and runs great!

Here is a picture to refresh forgetful memories, and show those who may have not seen it yet.

I do need a pressure release valve. One of the ones on it now constantly leaks until the tank is empty. It could just be dirty; I will have to take it off and see.

Ryan, a healthy looking compressor there! Refresh my memory more....does it have an unloader valve & kicker solenoid to slow the engine once top psi is met? And that looks to be an expansive area to mow. How much of it do you mow?

Uh... I don't know. If you mean that once it has a lot of pressure in the tank the engine slows down, that is what it has. :D

My property ends about 5 foot onto this side of the brush line; the other side belonged to Tessie. I mow both mine and Tessie's, just over 4 acres.

I have 3 of those big ones! One is for parts though. I am sure the parts unit has been in the background of MANY pictures I have posted. The other is in the service truck my Dad used for his tire service business.

Now do you see why I hate falling behind on mowing? :bigrofl:

Ryan, that's good news. Glad it's passing gas again. Um, making wind... Um... Aw, heck, glad your compressor is pumping again.

Good looking rig there Ryan. What is the size of the tank and the engine?

That compressor sure looks like it should handle most anything you need air for! Glad you have it up and running. Being a protable rig it should be very handy. As to your pressure valve leaking. Could it be an unloader valve that is leaking because of a bad check valve? Just something to check.

Thanks everybody!

The engine is a Kohler Command Pro 12.5 and the tank is 35 gallons.

I am not sure what it is. I have not done a lot with pneumatic stuff. I will have to go over everything the best I can and see if I can find a problem.

That sure looks like one tough unit. I think you have a real winner. I hope it lives up to all of your expectations.

Glad to hear you got the compressor running again. It sure looks good in that photograph. Both lawns look good too.
