I really need to fix my air compressor

Unloader valve has been fucked for a couple years. Tank will fill, but when it kicks back on after using air it trips the breaker.

I've been too lazy to fawk with it, but it sure would speed up the brake job i need to do this weekend.

I almost bought a new compressor for $60 yesterday. It was snap on but missing some pieces. Since its made in Ching Chong now I left it where it was. Maybe you can call and see if they will sell you the valve you need. If it was there.

I Thought i had a idea but as i typed i realized it would not work because a electric compressor does not have a relief valve like a gas powered one.

If you have a Champion R-series, I have a spare unloader valve for it. If you'd like it to work this weekend, I could even overnight it to you, just like it got overnighted to me so I could figure out the pump it was going on was junk more quickly.

Not really selling stuff, just thinking out loud that I'm really, really bad about returning parts I end up not needing.
