    Goodluck, those things are notorious for continuing to malfunction even after rebuild. Junk purge valve design.

    Been reading that too, I'm going to try & see what happens & if it continues to purge then I'll order one like you installed on your truck.

    It has a bad seal so it is bypassing to the exhaust. typical on old stuff.
    Changed it out with a new one and it works well now. The pressure builds but im now afraid that the pressure goes too high. The aux tank built pressure faster than the main and didnt stop at 120psi. I think the tech manual says that its supposed to cut off at 120psi but i could be wrong. Maybe a sensor went bad? what do you think? im kinda at a loss as to where to start.

    Does your horn work? Do your wipers work? If not then you have a bad pressure protection valve. If your horn and wipers work, you need to remove the metal line from the top of the air compressor. You need to have it off when the pressure reaches 120psi and see if you have air coming out of it at that psi. If you do then you got a stuck unloader in the compressor causing it to continuously run and not shut off. If you do not have air on that metal line but your wipers and horn do work then you have a bad air governor.

    The governor releases air it gets from the PPV when it hits 120psi or whatever its setting its sends air to the unloader on the compressor and it turns the compressor off. You do not need to measure the pressure you only need to see if it is sending air to the unloader. You will be able to hear the air rush out of the line. The air system will build air properly with the line off since it does not get air until the governor hits its set release pressure

    1938 Buick street rod with the ORIGINAL straight-8, Solex carb, HEI conversion, lake pipe (yes, single) and a small, but nasty sounding cam in it... It *really* got peoples attention when it pulled in!(Needs a header, but, that would be custom spent $$$$ for that engine! )
