Hello Donald and thanks for writing. We have the gauges # 17878 and the valves connecting to the manifold, but no inside pin or the rubber parts. For more specialized assistance or to speak with someone about this, we would suggest calling the manufacturer of the unit directly. Once you get the information you need, we should be able to find the information on our site for you. Hope this helps
my compressor airs up fine but when it reaches the set pressure air starts coming from the regulator at a little hole.
dwilson
There should not be any air coming from the regulator, if there is it is probably time to replace it. There is one part on the compressor that when it gets to the desired pressure you will hear air coming out of and that is the safety valve. Hope this helps!

Bad Regulator, had blown copper line,
Ordered a new copper line from ereplacementparts.com and found that it had blown from the regulator not working properly. I then ordered a new regulator and replaced it. The only issue that I had was that the copper line did not have new compression fittings, so I had to get them removed professionally from the old line. Note: the fittings are not common sizes. Only everything was repaired/replaced the compressor worked better than new! Beats buying a new Ridgid for $500.

Repair Difficulty:
Medium
Time Spent Repairing:
30-60 minutes
Tools Used:
Wrench Set, Adjustable Wrench, Hex wrenches, gasket seal
Air flow to outlet hose went low and would then build back up. Would not keep pressure.
1) Drain all air and remove mounting plate. 4 hex bolts on frame to and 2 small hex bolts holding the manifold and regulator assembly.
2) Remove - unscrew 2 feed air lines from manifold. ( mark air flow direction with marker)
3) Unscrew manifolds from old Regulator. ( take note of air flow direction of regulator)
Note: may help to gently hold regulator in vise to provide support. You can see inside regulator to help determine air direction. Mark it.
4) New Regulator ( Check that plastic base is snug on new regulator or it will leak).
5) Screw in both manifolds to new regulator. ( Little gasket seal helps.) Make sure outlet holes are aligned as before.
6) Reattach Inlet and outlet hoses to manifolds. Make sure you do not reverse sides.
7) Reattach manifold/regulator assembly to mounting plate. ( 2 small hex bolts)
8) Reattach mounting plate to frame. ( 4 hex bolts)

    This regulator was in perfect condition and arrived quickly. It was a perfect fit for my ridgid air compressor.

    Easy fix, works great
    Old regulator had bad seals and would not build pressure. installed this new regulator. installation was very easy needed just 2 hex keys and new thread tape and back in business in about 15 minutes. quality OEM product and very reasonable price to keep an expensive compressor up and runnin for another 6 years.
