If I named it Justin, I would have to hide it forever since most of my friends would want to lynch him..

I'll post up the build once I get to it. Soooo many projects, so little time.

Default Atlas Copco build

often overlooked when building up a compressor from used or rebuilt parts is the air reciever(tank) check valve,where the compressed air enters the tank..a lot of times they malfunction,hang up partially open,get leaky and cause issues with the pump building pressure and symptoms of high head pressure not being relieved,etc..these tank check valves keep the tank pressure from backing up into the compressor head..easy to repair(just install a new one,they're only about $20 from MSC,Grainger,or compressorparts) FWIW

Good point. I found the hard way that an inline check valve won't do it, they seem to fail in a hurry. An in the tank check valve is necessary for preventing heat build up and spring/seat failure.
At least in the 18 cfm size

I have already picked up a check valve, since the built in valve is missing from this unit.

I actually moved it from its previous waiting spot to a new waiting spot. Just bumped up in the queue.

Another piece of the puzzle.
I sourced a metric Lovejoy coupler and machined down the a key to fit. A gob of antisieze and it's on.
A mating coupler for the motor should show up this week, so I may actually get this thing together sooner than later!
