I have a Hitachi 2HP Air Compressor that runs fine but does not fill my tanks. I have checked the piston which is working fine. Can anyone help? Tom

Valves are likely sticking. Can you easily remove the head and inspect them?

RE: Compressor

I did remove the head and the large piston was moving up and down fine but I am not sure if that is the valve that you are referring to. Tom
