Forney ITEM# 75581 which is the full size regulator with 3/8" NPT threads does not come with a gauge or mounting bracket. We recommend that you turn down the pressure until the leak stops and then slowly turn it back up.

If the unit has been in service for an extended time then further repair or replacement may be in order.

We would not recommend this unit be used on a 3 1/2 H.P. compressor as it is only rated at 2 H.P.

  • Swan neck liner - ITEM#  85377

To order the gas valve and swan neck, contact us or find a Forney dealer in your area.
