I forgot to mention, I uses a wrench and a screwdriver but when the wife pressed the dump button and held it, the can didn't seem to magnetize but it did click and could feel that while holding the valve in hand and she pressed the button on and off.

Anyways, it is getting power and dumping air, just a wonky guage I think, see my post.

DO NOT spray WD40 into a valve, WD40 dries to a sticky, gummy film over time, and will likely cause problems in the future.
I just had the rear quick release valve replaced, the shop had to use PB Blaster to loosen rusty bolts. At first the tech thought he could work on the old valve but it was too corroded.

too late for me, from the posts on different forums/threads I read seems like it was wd40 that was used. I did dump air 2-3 times afterwards.

Slow Air up..

Can I pick someone's brain on this thread? I have a '99 American Eagle that I purchased almost 2 years ago now and have had a problem with it building air pressure since day one..If I start it and just let it idle, it won't build up pressure unless I bring the rpm's up to 1500-1600 and even the it is very slow to build.
I hold these rpm's until it reaches around 65 psi and that noisy buzzer goes off! I can then idle it back down to normal idle speed and it will continue to build pressure to 130 psi..
Still at idle the pressure will SLOWLY decrease to around 110 at which it will increase normally back up to 130 psi..
My question is, where do I start to resolve this problem? I have replaced the drier dissicant and even had a mobile mechanic look at it and he replaced the governor(?) is mounted on the frame near the muffler and has a couple air lines mounted to it?? Do the dump valves have anything to do with the very slow air build and higher rpms's to get it to air up??

Thanks in advance for any info on this!
