Customer Question
1971 sulliscrew 150 Ford...

1971 sulliscrew 150 Ford gas motor. Compressor will not build pressure when started. If I disconnect intake valve linkage and work it myself the throttle will respond and it will build air

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the complete model and serial number of your machine?

Unable to locate data plate but all I have for ya is it's a 1971 sullair portable screw comp with 4 cylinder gas engine

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the equipment mechanic to know before I connect you?

Cant think of anything. Any help will be appreciated.

Mate I am working on a Samsung se210 lc - 2. It had a little
mate I am working on a Samsung se210 lc - 2. It had a little problem a couple of months ago where the hydraulics loaded up while operating and stalled the engine, and the owner couldn't get the engine to turn over again. I got him to crack the lines to the regulators and he said one had pressure in it, and seemed to fix the problem. After that I ended up removing and resealing the pumps due to oil leaks. Since then he has done some light work with the machine with no problems. The other day he was working it and pulled back on both levers, to relief, and the engine died right down and wouldn't recover when he released the levers. Then the engine died and now we can't get it to start. It seems to be loading the pumps up on start up. … read more

I have a caterpillar forklift with a 4. The engine is a
the engine is a Mitsubishi 4G63. I purchased the unit knowing it might need some work. The first test I did was a compression check, the numbers were 60 0 0 60. I repeated the test a few minutes later with a little oil injected into through the spark plug holes the results were 80 30 30 75. I assumed I had a bad head gasket. When I removed the head, I found the head gasket intact and the valves while not perfect were passable. Could I have done something to screw up the compression check? … read more
