    Air compressor 4500 lb

    About a week ago I ordered a high-pressure air compressor for my Marauder air rifle. I can use it to Pump It Up plus my two scuba tanks for a reserve air. I had to wire it up for 2:20 I got that done and I tried it out. It pumped up pretty good but developed an oil leak under the cylinder base. I will have to call them see if they'll send me a cylinder base gasket. I can make a gasket for it I would have to find my gasket material which I haven't used for years.

    Nice .... Nice compressor, not a nice leak. At that pressure I'm sure it needs perfect gaskets. I'm wondering - could it be a shaft seal??

    With closer inspection I realized the vent plug its replace the oil cap with was not vented properly some of the vent holes head flashing in them not allowing it to breathe properly which probably build up pressure in the crankcase. I should have inspected it closer. It's like when you buy a new gun you tear it apart inspect it tune it up.

    What pressure are you working with. Are those nitrox tanks in hydro? The normal service pressure is 3000 psi. What is the Marauder's pressure requirement. Just asking, if you push it there is a tiny copper safety disk in that old J-valve will blow and save the day.

    Cool deal! I'd definitely have any tanks being filled in a water bath though.

    Hmm... I may need to invest in one of those for my paintball guns. Pretty sure the tanks take 3500psi and it's a little tough finding someone around here that can do it.
