Captn Jack,

I cant tell what brand pressure of switch that is, you should see a nut on top of a big spring or 2 nuts and springs on a Square D brand pressure switch, tightening or loosening nut would set turn on and/or shutoff pressure. If you go too high make sure your over pressure safety valve works, it usually has a pull ring. Also the compressor will work harder and longer if you increase the upper range, could possibly overheat the motor. go a little at a time and see the results.

Will take a look at it. The high is set at 150psi just want the lower pressure a bit higher is all.

Captn Jack,

150 PSI is the highest I would go with a single stage compressor, that is the absolute top pressure that can be set. Hopefully there is a separate nut for turn on setting (one for high and another for low) If there is only one adjustment nut you would be screwed because with that design, the differential pressures are already set and go together and you are at the max now. Pressure switches are a relatively cheap part to replace.
