Hello again! Welcome to another Do It Yourself article from all of the web staff here at ToolPartsDirect.com. Today, we’re going to show you how to replace the quick couplers and safety valve on a Porter Cable Compressor.

Tools You Will Need:

Torx Screwdriver


Teflon Tape

Before we start, make sure your compressor is unplugged and powered down. We want you to be safe! Once that’s done, let’s get started!

Step 1:

First, you your fingers to pull the safety pin near the gauges. Then, use your torx screwdriver to loosen the screw holding gauge cover over the gauge.

The cover should come right off.

Step 2:

Now, use your wrench to remove the couplers. BE CAREFUL! Brass is a soft metal and it can be damaged if you apply to much pressure.

Step 3:

Take your Teflon tape and wrap it around the thread. Make sure it’s wrapped the same direction the thread.

Step 4:

Thread all three couplers by hand. Then, use your wrench to tighten. Make sure it’s nice and snug, but don’t overtighten it.

Step 5:

Once all three couplers are tightened, replace the cover.

Finally, tighten the drain valve, plug it in and test it out.

And there you have it! Hopefully, this article saved you

some time and money. Be on the lookout for future content from all of us here from ToolPartsDirect.com!
