Try running it again and see if it stops at 100lbs again. The problem could only be the pressure switch. It controls what pressure level it turns on and off. At 5 hp. make sure you replace it with a heavy duty pressure switch or the new one will only last about two weeks. You can't get one at Granger. The last one I bought I got off ebay.

It's not shutting off @ 100, it continues to run & doesn't build up any more pressure. Thanks to all of you. I've got a call into the Ingersol Rand office in St. Albins, WV to get a price on new reeds. Keith

Sorry, I misunderstood your post. The problem could be the compression rings but being only 7 years old I would expect the problem is some dirt has gotten under one or both flapper valves (#36)in the compressor pump. Sometimes you can just take them out and clean them. This illustration is from my 20 year old Ingersoll-Rand T30 compressor.
