Finished putting my small emergency compressor back together and think I found the reason for the original fail
The blow off valve had become completely jammed.. Took it apart, cleaned it, replaced the spring and set it to release at a very moderate 60psi.. Which is plenty for everything I am likely to use it for.. inflating cycle tyres, moped tyres and the like
Pulled my bird out the garage to run her for 5 minutes. I broke the charging cable plug for the optimate when I last rode her, so she's not been on charge for a couple of months! I didn't expect her to start, especially not on the first push of the button. The benefits of a gel battery I suppose.
Anyway, fixed the cable and put her away, on charge.
I probably shouldn't have done any of that as I'm off work with a bad back but I was bored!
