Yea the small plastic tube dumps head pressure after the valve trips to prevent compressor locking between cycles.

Amazing how a pulley can make so much difference in RPM. So, the larger pulley on the motor allowed the RPM to increase the RPM of the compressor. Reduce pulley, motor still same RPM but Compressor RPM lower. The Original Compressor pulley was larger so the RPM maintained the correct RPM with the original motor Pulley. I wonder what made the compressor go bad? The original compressor I mean? Good work Mustie 1. Enjoy your work and commentation and good video. Learned a lot today.

Definitely seems better at lower RPM, but I'm thinking that blue compressor was built at a time when things were built to plod along all day, and to that end, I think it might still be running too fast. We have a big old 1963 Ingersoll Rand two stage/two cylinder compressor, and you can almost literally count the piston strokes. Remember also, if the compressor runs too fast, it cannot ingest the air fast enough to fully charge the cylinder(s), and starts its compression stroke still with a partial vacuum in the cylinder. Slowed down to the correct RPM, it will have time to take more air and compress it more efficiently, so slowing down the compressor can actually result in charging the receiver more quickly.

recip compressors generally can run in both directions since they just have reed valves in the head. The action of the piston is the same either direction.

Hi My Friend, It might seem like I am having a bromance with you by all of the praise and communications I have sent recently, LOL. But I realized I don't know at least your first name so that I can be more respectful. I am and have been enjoying your restoration videos and I wanted to point out my observations. First, I am so impressed by when you have a lack of knowledge on an item you are troubleshooting, restoring or scavaging you are not too proud to not admit your lack of knowledge on a projex=ct but the lack of knowledge is overcome by your patience, troubleshooting skills, and your calm demeanor. It is a winning trifecta and never stop the way you narrate. It is a gift and as a near homebound disabled male You bring me into your shop with each project and for the time I watch you do your magic I am not thinking about my own physical limitations and feeling my depression over how far I have fallen, both physically and mentally due to the depression my disability causes me as we struggle financially since I became disabled. Compounding that is that my wife is disabled too after her diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis she had a terrible attack leaving her incapable of continuing her long-time career in Retail management. We both were in upper-level retail management and our loss of income going on to disability devastated our lives and is causing a 35-year marriage to continue to possible failure. Money problems will destroy even the best of marriages and I am so entertained watching your genius. Be well and if you feel comfortable can you let me know your first name? Mine is Louis.

Just a note on the "Leak" at 43 minutes. The tank pressure that operates the switch is the big pipe supporting the switch. The small "leak" is a pressure relief which bleeds off the pressure off the line between the compressor and tank check valve so the motor can start without high head pressure. If you fix the "leak" the compressor may stall the motor and prevent starting due to the head pressure. I got a cheap compressor as someone fixed the leak and it made the compressor not start quite often. I readjusted this valve (it opens when the compressor shuts off) and it worked again.

For direction, just compare the angle of the fan blades. Quickest way to check rotation when replacing compressors. New one is RH thread and rotates counter clockwise screwing back through air. The old one is also right hand thread blades. No motor direction change needed. Knew that as you asked the question.

You need to put a smaller pulley on the motor, because if you don't you have altered the CFM of the machine and will take a longer time to reach it's desired pressure, therefore using more energy, so not really cost effective.

I vote for three things. 1) Measure the actual head temperature of this compressor. The running temperature can make a huge difference in its longevity. 2) A still smaller pulley on the motor on this compressor. It sounds like it is spinning a lot faster than most compressors I hear. 3) Don't leave curiosity hanging. Tear down the other compressor to see what the failure is. You will always wonder if you don't! Don't drive yourself crazy that way!

Any updates on this new compressor? like the million other people that said in the comments, you are spinning that pump too fast. 800-1000 should be your target. Pump wear is exponential with RPM, meaning a little too fast can kill a good pump very quickly.
