Part 11 is backing out. Do I need to take apart the whole top cylinder. Should I buy a rebuild kit and are they in stock? All so I think it is makeing a small knocking sound. Cant hear anything leaking will try soap and water. Last 2 fills stopped at 3500 been getting at least 4200.

you definitely have a leak. i can fill a 44 CUBIC FOOT SCBA TANK( obviously a lot bigger than the small tanks you are filling from dead empty to 4500psi in about 10 hours with 90 psi input. get out the soapy water.

Just screw part #11 back in snug. You might have to put some teflon tape or a drop of lock tight on it if it keeps coming out.

I pulled the top cylinder and screwed back in part 11. Then checked with soap and water couldnt find any leaks. Then tried to fill my tank. After about 30 min i want down to check to make sure it was filling. I found that it was not so I turned it off (tank was all ready at 3600psi) and when I blead the line to the tank a mist of grease spared out. I think I need to rebuild the top cylinder. My shoe box only has about 10-15 fills, last about 3 hours each so 30-45 hour total.

Thanks for your time.
