Hi Tom , i noticed today that there is some play on the big sproket that the motor turns , it moves on the shaft back and forth , but does stop at both directions after some movement , i tried to tighten the allens up a bit but no go they were very tight already , is this play with the sproket on the shaft normal ?

Some play is normal yes. Between 1/16 and 1/8th of an inch.

Tom OK Tom , thanks for the fast reply i guess i won't worry about the play then , i am charging up the 500cf DOT tank now from 3400 to 4500 , so far it looks to be taking about 1 1/2 hours per 100 psi gain on that huge tank , chug -chug -chug it goes ! i finished off the 3rd 88cf cylinder earlier today , and then hooked it up the big kahuna !
