    I have found the problem. Half of the check valve is part of a
    manifold. The manifold should hold a spring to push the ball against
    the seat. No Spring!
    Thanks, Mikek

    Thanks for all the help guys, I bought a kit of springs at Home Depot,
    found one that looked right, installed it and it worked. I adjusted the
    pressure cut off switch for a lower pressure, it was factory adjusted
    90/125. I changed it to 80/105.
    Thanks, Mikek

    Good job Mike. Much cheaper than a new compressor. Be sure to check the
    drain at the bottom of the tank. You don't want a lot (or any) of water
    building up inside.

    Thanks, I'll check the drain.
    I was talking with my wife, figuring out when I got the compressor.
    It was some of my dads stuff that I got when he died a little over 10
    years ago. I have another smaller compressor so I never cared to much
    about getting this one working. It the process of pressurizing the
    pontoons on a boat to pump water out, I thought I might need it.
    Turned out to be easier to drill a 1-1/2" hole in the pontoon and pump
    the water out.
    But, I'm glad to have it working now!

    Thanks Mikek
