Cut-Out Pressure: When you turn on your air compressor and it begins to run, air pressure in the air
tank begins to build. It builds to a certain high
pressure before the motor automatically shuts off protecting your air tank from pressure higher than its
capacity. The high pressure at which the motor shuts
off is called "cut-out pressure."
Cut-In Pressure: While the motor is off, air tank
pressure drops as you continue to use your accessory. When the tank pressure drops to a certain low
level the motor will re-start automatically. The low
pressure at which the motor automatically re-starts
is called "cut-in pressure."
To Lock-Out Power: Place a lock on the line power
switch so no one else can turn on the power.

applications. Regulators can be purchased from most
Sears stores or through the Sears General Catalog or
Power Toot Catalog.
Your aircompressor can be used foroperatingpaint
spray guns, air tooJs, cauJking guns, grease guns, air
brushes, eandblasterso inflating tires and pJastio toys,
Separate airtransformerswhich combine the functions of sir regulation and/or moisture and dirt
removat should be used where applicable.
Air Compressor Pump: To compress air, the pistons
move up and down in the cy!inders.
On the
downstroke,
air is drawn in through the air intake
filter and then through the air intake valves. The
exhaust vatve remains closed. On the upstroke of the
piston, air is compressed. The intake valves close and
compressed airis forced out through the exhaust
valve, through the outlet tube, through the check
valve and intothe air tank. Working air is not available
until the compressor has raised air tank pressure
above that required at the air outlet.
Pressure Switch: The pressure switch automatically
starts the motor when the air tank pressure drops
below the factory set "cut-in" pressure. It stops the
motor when the air tank pressure reaches the factory
set "cut-out"
pressure.
Check Valve: When the air compressor is operating,
the check valve is "open," allowing compressed air to
enter the air tank. When the air compressor reaches
"cut-out" pressure, the check valve "doses," eJlowing air pressure to remain inside the air tank. If the air
is not unloaded, the motor will try to start, but vviil be
unable to. The check vane allows the motor to restart freeJy.
Pressure Release Valve: The pressure release vane is
designed to automatically release compressed air
from the compressor head and the outlet tube when
the air compressor reaches "cut-out = pressure or is
shut off. ff the air is not released, the motor will try
to start but will be unable to. The pressure release
valve allows the motor to restart freely. When the
motor stops running, air will be heard escaping for a
few seconds. No air should be heard leaking when the
motor is running.
Safety Valve: ffthe pressure switch does not shut off
the air compressor at or near its cut-out pressure
setting, the safety valve will protect against high
pressure by "popping out" at its factory set pressure
(slighdy higher than the pressure switch cut-out
setting).
Location of the Air Compressor
Operate the air compressor in a clean, dry and we]]
ventilated area. The air intake filter must be kept dear
of obstructions which couJd reduce air delive_ of the
aircompressor.The aircompressor shouldbe located
at least 12" away from wales or other obstructions
that could interfere with the flow of air through the
fan bladed flywheel The air compressor crankcase
and head are designed wi_h fins to provide proper
cooling. If humidity is high, a Sears sir filter can be
installed on the air outlet adapter to remove excessive moisture.
The air compressor shouJd be as near to air outlets
es
possible in order to avoid long pipe lines. Do not place
the air compressor where heat is excessive.

I. The air compressor must be bolted to the floor.
Bolting holes are provided in the base feet.
2. Mount the air compressor on a solid level foundation with no strain to the air tank feet° Solid
shims may be used if necessary.
Piping
Plastic or PVC pipe is not designed for use
with compressed air. Regardless of its indicated pressure rating, plastic pipe can burst
from air pressure. Use only metal pips for air
distribution lines.
If a pipe line is necessary, use pipe that is the same
size as the air tank valve. Piping that is too small will
restrict the flow of air. if piping is over 100 feet tong,
use the next larger size. Bury underground lines
below the frost line and avoid pockets where condensation can gather and freeze. Apply pressure before
underground lines are covered to make sure aU pipe
joints are free of leaks.
Lubrication
and Oil
To prevent added current draw and motor overheating we recommend the use of 12 gauge (AWG) wire,
not exceeding a 70 foot length. The wire must be
rated at a minimum temperature of 75 ° C.
When connecting wires, make sure that: (1) the
electrical box is large enough; (2) service is of
adequate amperage rating; (3} the supply line has the
same electrical characteristics (voltage, eycies and
phase} as the motor; {4) the line wire is the proper size
and (5) no other equipment is operated from the same
line. Various national and local codes and standards
have been set up covering electrica! apparatus and
wiring. These shoumd be consulted and observed. Our
recommended wire sizes may be smaller than the
minimum set up by local ordinances. If so, the larger
size wire shoutd be used to prevent excessive line
voltage drop. For wiring instructions, see the diagram

NOTE
Pulley and Flywheel
The belt should be centered over the grooves
on the flywheel and motor pulley.
6. Push the motor back into regular position and
tighten bolts securely. Proper tension is approximately 114" belt deflection measured midway
between the pulley and flywheel when a 3 pound
weight or equivalent finger pressure is applied at
this point. A loose belt will squeal at compressor
start-up.
7. Replace beltguard and screws.
I
- Alignment
The compressor flywheel and motor pulley must be
inline (in the same plane) within 1tl 6" to assure belt
retention within sheave grooves. The motor mounting holes on the saddle are skewed to square the
motor with the compressor mounting hole as the belt
is tensioned. To check alignment, disconnect electrical power and remove the belt guard. Place a straightedge against the outside of the flywheel and measure
the distance from it to the nearest groove. Alignment
is achieved when the other end of the straightedge is
within 1/16" of the measured dimension at the pulley
grooves. Squareness is achieved when the pulley
grooves are an equal distance from the straightedge
on both sides of the motor shaft.
