The surface of the air compressor and the
plumbing between the compressor and the
cooler may reach temperatures above 150
degrees. Touching these surfaces during
operation can cause burns.
Do not inspect or clean the compressor while
the hydraulic power source is connected.
Accidental engagement of the tool can cause
serious injury.
The air taken in by the air compressor must be
free of flammable fumes and vapors.
Before performing any maintenance on the
compressor, place a warning tag on the
hydraulic power source or disconnect the hoses
from the compressor motor to prevent
accidental startup of the compressor.
Compressor speed should not exceed 1300
RPM.

Operation
Each compressor is bench tested under load at the factory to ensure proper break-in and operation.
While it is not necessary to follow any break-in procedure, the following checks should be made
before putting the unit into service and periodically during use.
Before Start-Up
Check the oil level in the compressor with the dipstick on the unit. If oil is needed, use American
Eagle synthetic compressor oil (P/N C0087) or an equivalent synthetic oil. Note: There may be
oil left in the crankcase from the factory bench test. Overfilling may cause the compressor
to back blow oil. Always check the oil level and fill to the designated marking on the
dipstick before putting the unit into service.
Check the air intake filters on each head to make certain that they are clean and unobstructed.
Dirty air filters are a possible cause of reduced air output.
General Information
To use the compressor, start the engine and
engage the hydraulic system with the
compressor toggle switch. Through the
hydraulic valve manifold, the system will now
function automatically. Once engaged, adjust
the engine speed control to ensure that the
compressor speed does not exceed 1300
RPM under load.
pressure reaches 150 PSI the solenoid closes
shutting off the oil flow to the motor and
diverts the oil to the oil cooler.
With the compressor engaged, the main
cooling system, which consists of an oil
cooler, electric fan motor and fan continually
runs drawing ambient air through the cooler
fins and across the fan assembly discharging
heated air past the compressor and out the
cover assembly.
If adjustment is necessary for cable operated
speed controls, loosen the jam nut on the
cable end, make the adjustment and retighten
the jam nut.
For electronic operated speed controls, adjust
speed adjustment screw as needed to set
RPM.
For setting engine RPM through the chassis
ECM, contact local chassis dealer.
When the air pressure falls below 120 PSI,
the 12 volt electric solenoid opens allowing
hydraulic oil to flow to the hydraulic drive
motor then back to the manifold and through
the oil cooler assembly. Once the air

Installation
COMPONENT INSTALLATION
This section pertains to the installation of the air compressor, PTO, pump and other related items.
The instructions are intended as a guide to assist you with particular installation. These instructions
will provide only general information.
Pump Assembly:
The pump assembly may either be installed
directly on the PTO or as an optional method,
may be driven by a driveline from the PTO.
Pump manufacturers provide specific installation
information for their products and should be
consulted if questions arise.
from the compressor to this switch. Connect
the other switch terminal to a fuse holder and
then to a 12-volt power supply. A third wire is
required from the air compressor switch when
connecting the speed control into the system.
(See drawing below)
FAN
PTO Assembly:
Check with the PTO manufactures
representative for specific instructions regarding
your particular make, model, and year of
vehicle. As some trucks may require
modification of the transmission cross member
and the exhaust system, the manufacturer’s
instructions should be followed to insure proper
installation of the PTO.

Compressor Assembly:
Prepare the mounting location of the
compressor by locating and drilling four (4)
holes, 7/16” diameter as per the mounting
pattern of the air compressor base. Using four
(4) 3/8” x 1.25 GR-5 cap screws, 3/8” flat
washers, and 3/8” nyloc nuts, secure the
compressor in place. The compressor is air
cooled, and must have a clean supply of cooling
air to the fan with minimum restrictions.
Adequate space must be provided for proper
circulation of air.

SPEED CONTROL
Electric speed control:
An optional electric or electronic speed control
must be used to maintain proper operating
speed of the air compressor. The engine speed
control will automatically increase from idle to
preset speed when engaged and decrease
when disengaged. The electric cable pull speed
control Stellar P/N C0873 is used on most
gasoline engines. The electronic speed controls
are used only on Ford 7.3 and 6.0L diesel
engines. Proper installation instructions are
provided with each system.
Electrical Connections:
From the air pressure switch there are two (2)
wires, red and black, running to the outside of
the compressor housing. Connect the black
wire to the vehicle frame or other suitable
ground. Mount a single throw toggle switch in a
convenient location and connect the red wire
SHD-60AF Manual

Hydraulic System:
The hydraulic system consists of the pump, oil
reservoir, filters and hoses. Installed on the
compressor is a valve block assembly that
controls the flow to the hydraulic motor. To this
block, a 1/2” high-pressure hose must be
attached. This hose comes from the hydraulic
pumps pressure side. A 3/4” minimum lowpressure return line is connected to the oil
cooler outlet and is routed to the oil reservoir.
American Eagle recommends a sufficient sized
reservoir be provided which includes the proper
suction and return filters. The cooler on the
compressor is designed and sized to cool the
air compressor efficiently. An auxillary oil cooler
is required when additional hydraulically
operated equipment are added to the hydraulic
system. Pressure on the return line exceeding
200 PSI can and will cause damage to the filter,
cooler, and components of the compressor
hydraulic system.

Troubleshooting
If symptoms of poor performance develop, the following chart can be used as a guide to investigate
and correct the problem. When diagnosing faults in operations of the air compressor, always check
that the hydraulic power source is supplying the correct hydraulic flow and pressure that is listed in
the compressor specification section of this manual. Note: To Operate, the American Eagle SHD60AF Compressor needs 10 GPM and 1800 PSI System Pressure.
Problem
Possible Cause
Solution
Compressor locks up at 110 Weak Hydraulic Motor.
psi and higher while under
load:
If the Hydraulic pump is supplying the
recommended amount of fluid to the hydraulic
motor, replace the hydraulic motor.
Note: When checking
hydraulic pump flow,
make sure the air tank is
closed and the
compressor is running.
Faulty Hydraulic Pump.
If the pump pressure is below the
recommended GPM, replace the Hydraulic
pump if necessary.
Oil Pressure is low.
If the oil pressure gauge is reading in the red
area, the oil pressure is low. See the Low Oil
Pressure entry in this troubleshooting section.
Compressor will not
operate:
Air receiver is full.
Drain and activate pressure switch.
12 Volt power is not going to the line
side of the pressure switch.
If there is no power going to the line side of the
pressure switch, trace the wire back to the
power source.
Faulty Pressure Switch.
If there is no power going to the solenoid valve,
replace the pressure switch.
Hydraulic Lines not installed correctly.
Reinstall hydraulic lines.
Air Couplers or hoses are blocked.
Locate and remove restriction.
Inline Check-Valve is leaking.
Disassemble, clean, and reinstall or replace.
Faulty Solenoid Valve.
If there is power going to the pressure switch,
press down on the solenoid valve bypass
button. If the compressor starts to operate,
replace the solenoid valve.
Compressor is locked up.
Remove the coupler and lovejoy between the
compressor pump and the hydraulic motor.
Turn the compressor over by hand. If the
compressor turns over freely, the pump is ok.
This indicates there is a possible hydraulic
problem.
Hydraulic motor malfunctioning.
Inspect and repair.
Hydraulic pump malfunctioning.
Check flow and pressure settings.

Problem
Possible Cause
Solution
Compressor runs hot:
Dirty intake filter.
Clean filter assembly.
Low oil Level.
Add oil if needed.
Inline check-valve leaking.
Disassemble, clean, and re-install.
Blown Head or Reed Valve Gasket.
Replace Gasket.
Malfunctioning reed valve.
Inspect, clean or replace valves.
Speed control not working.
Check power supply and readjust.
Check for air hose leaks.
Tighten any hose fitting leaking.
Hydraulic system too hot.
Reservoir too small. Add cooler to system.
Power unit relief set too low.
Readjust relief valve.
Hydraulic motor worn.
Replace with new motor.
Hydraulic flow too low.
Check and reset flow.
Malfunctioning reed valves.
Inspect, clean, or replace valves.
Weak Hydraulic Pump.
If the hydraulic pump pressure is below the
recommended GPM to the hydraulic motor, the
hydraulic pump could be weak and needs to be
replaced.
Note: Compressor kicks out
at 150 PSI and kicks back in
at 115 PSI
Weak Hydraulic Motor.
If the hydraulic pump is supplying the
recommended GPM to the hydraulic motor, the
hydraulic motor could be weak and needs to be
replaced.
No lubricating oil pressure:
No oil in crankcase.
Add oil.
Pump suction blocked.
Remove oil intake plug and inspect intake
screen. Clean blockage.
Air lock in oil pump.
Loosen oil gauge while the compressor is
running. When oil begins to flow, tighten the
gauge.
Oil pump pin is broken.
Replace pin.
Malfunctioning oil pump.
If the oil pressure gauge indicator is reading in
the red area, use a 1/4” lock washer and point
it flat. Remove the oil pump housing cover and
place the lock washer inside the oil pump
transfer bushing so it is between the pump
spring and the transfer bushing. If oil pressure
is still low, add one more lock washer. If two
lock washers don’t increase the oil pressure,
replace the oil pump.
Compressor runs too slow:
Compressor hesitates or
stumbles at restart (115
PSI):

Limited Warranty Statement
American Eagle warrants products designed and manufactured by Stellar to be free from defects in material and workmanship under proper use
and maintenance. Products must be installed and operated in accordance with Stellar’s written instructions and capacities. The warranty period
shall cover the following:
Twelve (12) month warranty on parts and
Twelve (12) month repair labor
The warranty period shall begin from the date recorded by American Eagle as the in-service date. This date will be derived from the completed
warranty registration card. In the event a warranty registration card is not received by American Eagle, the factory ship date will be used. New
compressors will be issued on all returns within 90 days of this factory ship date. After 90 days, American Eagle reserves the right to issue
remanufactured compressors. Regardless of in-service date, warranty coverage does not extend beyond twenty-four (24) months from date of
manufacture.
American Eagle’s obligation under this warranty is limited to, and the sole remedy for any such defect shall be, the repair and/or replacement (at
American Eagle’s option) of the unaltered part and/or component in question. American Eagle after-sales service personnel must be notified by
telephone, fax, or letter of any warranty-applicable damage within fourteen (14) days of its occurrence. If at all possible, American Eagle will ship
the replacement part within 24-hours of notification by the most economical, yet expedient, means possible. Expedited freight delivery will be at
the expense of the owner.
Warranty claims must be submitted and shall be processed in accordance with American Eagle’s established warranty claim procedure. American
Eagle after-sales service personnel must be contacted prior to any warranty claim. A return materials authorization (RMA) account number must
be issued to the claiming party prior to the return of any warranty parts. Parts returned without prior authorization will not be recognized for

performed on a American Eagle-manufactured product, original American Eagle parts must be used to keep the warranty in force. The warranty
may also be voided if the product is modified or altered in any way not approved, in writing, by American Eagle.
The owner/operator is responsible for furnishing proof of the date of original purchase of the American Eagle product in question. Warranty
registration is the ultimate responsibility of the owner and may be accomplished by the completion and return of the American Eagle product
registration card provided with the product. If the owner is not sure of registration, he is encouraged to contact American Eagle at the address
below to confirm registration of the product in question. This warranty covers only defective material and workmanship. It does not cover
depreciation or damage caused by normal wear and tear, accident, mishap, untrained operators, or improper or unintended use. The owner has
the obligation of performing routine care and maintenance duties as stated in American Eagle’s written instructions, recommendations, and
specifications. Any damage resulting from owner/operator failure to perform such duties shall void the coverage of this warranty. The owner will
pay the cost of labor and supplies associated with routine maintenance.
The only remedies the owner has in connection with the breach or performance of any warranty on the American Eagle product specified are
those set above. In no event will American Eagle, the American Eagle distributor/dealer, or any company affiliated with American Eagle be liable
for business interruptions, costs of delay, or for any special, indirect, incidental, or consequential costs or damages. Such costs may include, but
are not limited to, loss of time, loss of revenue, loss of use, wages, salaries, commissions, lodging, meals, towing, hydraulic fluid, or any other
incidental cost.
All products purchased by American Eagle from outside vendors shall be covered by the warranty offered by that respective manufacturer only.

2005. The warranty is for the use of the original owner only and is not transferable without prior written permission from American Eagle.
THIS WARRANTY IS EXPRESSLY IN LIEU OF ANY OTHER WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING ANY WARRANTY OF
MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. REMEDIES UNDER THIS WARRANTY ARE LIMITED TO THE
PROVISION OF MATERIAL AND SERVICES, AS SPECIFIED HEREIN. AMERICAN EAGLE INDUSTRIES, INC. IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR
