    What is your air pressure gauge showing?
    I had one mess up one time and build 200 pounds pressure, it will sure tell you where the weak spots in your lines are. lol

    How do you build 2oolbs of air pressure when the compressor cuts out at 120?

    The governor is what cuts the compressor off at 120 or what ever you want to set it at. I keep mine at 130 on one I pull a belly dump on. The compressor will keep building air until the popoff blows and releases it. There has been cases where the governor malfunctioned and the popoff was froze, they will build up until it stripped the bull gears on the front of the engine. There is no real limit to how much pressure the compressor will make.
