Default craftsman 4hp 25 gal. 1993 model 919.152920

I have had this compressor for nearly 20 years and it has run well. I just noticed that I can't get the compressor beyond 80 psi with the regulator fully turned to the + side. It will hold the the pressure and overnight drop about 20 psi as it always has done. I hear no leaks. It does seem to take a long time to get to 80 psi.. Any ideas??Thanks

Rings are worn out or check valves in the head are worn out. Are you 100% sure the gauge is reading right? Roger

Roger: I did replace the guage with the same results. The check valves..do you mean the reed valves just below the head???

Does anyone have the wiring color codes for the motor of this compressor? Where would the orange wire go? I am wiring for 220v
