The compressor looks imported. The tank is worth the money you paid. Keep it for additional air storage.
The motor is a GSX240-242 Is this 7 hp? Im just wondering what PSI it should build up to before it begins releasing air or stop turning the compressor.
Here are some close up pictures of the location where a run unloader would be located. I dont see a run unloader but do see a clutch on the Honda motor. How does this clucth operate? does it disengage after so much back pressure from the compressor?
