ok, thanks, ***** ***** you checked for any air leaks??? have you checked the output of the compressor??? how old is the dryer filter??? Roy
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
yes i tested the compressor and it was giving me about 140psi with gauge and replaced the governor the dryer i have not changed
Expert:  roybelding replied 1 year ago.
to verify, you could bypass the dryer and see if it resolves the issue. does the compressor shut off at 125 or does it keep running??

ok ill do that right now and it does shut off at 125
Expert:  roybelding replied 1 year ago.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
