Smile check valve

could not find one anywhere including on top of the tank. bought a a viair 450c compressor, 100% duty cycle at 100PSI. $264 vs. $1170 for the Gast replacement, and it came with its own check valve. Now the compressor cuts off at 98.5. before it ran almost constantly. Found a few leaks here and there. Still doesn't stay up for a week but it does stay up over night now.

check valve revisited

back to the drawing board. went out yesterday and the pressure was gone. Wouldn't refill past 60 according to the gauge but a physical check showed 95 or so. That went after a few hours. The bags now won't inflate past a couple of inches on level ground and the gauge just stopped working. am thinking I will strip all the auto stuff and fill the tank (and thus the bags) manually until I can replace all the system. Any thoughts out there?
