Jim and I have been discussing this over the phone and I think he needs to up the pressure as well...

Another question for the compressor guru's..... his company told him not to break in the compressor by letting it run for an hour with the pic **** valve open at the bottom of the tank to seat the rings... My compressor company said that step was very important to do for seating..... His said it would polish the cylnder walls and the rings may never seat.... What is the deal here???? THey told him to break in the compressor under pressure.... That sounds more appropiate to me after thinking about it, but of course I broke mine in the other way a long time ago......

Any thoughts on that??? Jim did I leave anything out??
