adapter has a sealant applied from the factory to
prevent leaks around the threads.
2. Attach the regulator assembly to the air compressor by
aligning the regulator to the threaded male adapter on
the manifold. Be certain to align the threads before
tightening to prevent thread damage.
3. The assembly should turn clockwise for approximately
6-7 revolutions. The tank and regulator gauge should
be facing in the same direction (see the figure below).
To prevent damage and leaks, do not over-tighten.
Location of the Air Compressor
The air compressor should always be located in a clean,
dry, and well ventilated environment. The unit should have
at minimum, 12 inches of space on each side. The air filter
intake should be free of any debris or obstructions. Check

_
Do not attempt to start the air compressor without first
adding oil to the crankcase. Serious damage can result
unless filled with oil. The pump is shipped without oil from
the factory. Only use non-detergent oils since multiviscosity motor oils leave carbon deposits on pump
components, thus reducing performance and compressor
life.

Improper installation of the grounding plug will result in a
risk of electric shock. If repair or replacement of the cord
or plug is necessary, do not connect the grounding wire to
either flat blade terminal. The wire with insulation having
an outer surface that is green with or without yellow
stripes is the grounding wire. Check with a qualified
electrician or serviceman
if the grounding instructions are
not completely understood, or if in doubt as to whether the
product is properly grounded. Do not modify the plug
provided; if it will not fit the outlet, have the proper outlet
installed by a qualified electrician.
This product is for use on a circuit having a nominal rating
of 120 volts and is factory-equipped with a specific electric
cord and plug to permit connection to a proper electric
circuit. Make sure that the product is connected to an outlet
having the same configuration as the plug. No adapter
should be used with this product. If the product must be
reconnected for use on a different type of electric circuit,
qualified service personnel should make the reconnection.

plug on the air hose into the quick connect socket. The
quick connect socket collar will snap forward and lock
the plug into place providing an air tight seal between
the socket and plug. To leiease tile ah ilu_u push th_
collar back on the quick connect socket.
6. Plug the power cord into the proper receptacle.
7. Turn the Auto-On/Off lever to the On-Auto position and
the compressor will start and build air pressure in the
tank to cut-out pressure and then shut off automatically.
8. Adjust the regulator to a PSI setting that is needed for
your application and be sure it is within the safety
standards required to perform the task. If using a
pneumatic tool, the manufacturer should have recommendations in the manual for that particular tool on
operating PSI settings.
9. The air compressor is now ready for use. The following
inflation and cleaning accessories packaged with this
unit should only be operated at maximum pressure of
20-30 PSI: blow gun, tapered nozzle, inflation needles,
wire brush adapter, blow gun adapter.
Daily Shut-Down Procedures
1. Set the Auto-On/Off lever to the Off position.
2. Unplug the power cord from the receptacle.
3. Set the outlet pressure to zero on the regulator.
