Couple more on-board air questions

Hopefully this hasn't been covered in the past but I think I have read most stuff and I haven't seen this answered.
1. Where can I buy a pressure relief valve?
2. Is there anywhere local that I could find a pressure switch nice and small like the sun products?
3. How do I remove the clutch on the york, the pully needs a new bearing pressed in and I want to clean behind it anyways.
Thanks in advance.

Re: Couple more on-board air questions

I found a commercial compressor shop for the pressure switch (not too small though, but adjustable), a check valve (that relieves the compressor of pressure when not being used).

Removing the clutch is easy once you know this little piece of info. You remove the bolt that hold the cluth on (If I remember correctly it is reverse threaded), then you use a larger bolt (something like 9/16" coarse thread) and screw it in the clutch. That bolt will bottom out on the shaft and if you keep turning it it will pull the clutch straight off. To re-install, use the reverse threaded bolt to pull the clutch back on it.

Re: Couple more on-board air questions

I bought pressure relief and pressure switch from Grainger's. Don't know if you have one there or not. A buddy of mine bought all his stuff at an Ace hardware store. Around here it seems like they have one of pretty much anything you can think of. That's the catch though, they only have one. What Raymo said for the clutch, if you use an air gun it'll pop it right off and you don't have to figure out how to hold the pulley still.
