Seems like a simple fix.  Amazing the difference that little bit of maintenance made!

Travis, thanks so much for reposting this video.  I completely forgot about the 'check valve' and how it can and does affect the compressor.  Now that an oil change has been completed and the check valve cleaned my compressor is back up and running.  It seems a bit slow but maybe that is me just being impatient.  Ha!

Now on to repairing my Gauntlet's Ninja regulator.

I remember watching watching this a while back, excellent to know and be reminded of.

And also an excellent job doing everything one handed, I remember what Jay Leno said once on national TV, that guys become really good at typing one handed once they get online enough…  ;D
