I re-installed the air compressor after a PO removed it, it works fine as far as pumping the shocks up, but I noticed they lose a little pressure overnite. I think it's leaking back through the compressor or control, are either of them rebuildable?

They weren't leaking when I had the shrader valves on them, I think it's leaking through the compressor or the controls.

You can take the controls apart, clean it up and inspect the seals (o-rings I believe) they may have dried out or cracked.

Hi All,

I have a leak in my compressor. I think it has to do with the seals.

Does anybody have a list of the seals and sizes for rebuilding the compressor and system?

Thanks

Steve

Before I'd tear apart the compressor, I would replace the schraeder valves in the control panel. That's where my leak was!
