In order for proper operation, I had to remove shroud, and realign both the pump and the motor. When delivered, the shroud was bent and mounted at a severe angle and the belt was installed with a twist. I had to remove the shroud and straighten it with hammer and dolly. (The bent shroud was NOT shipping damage.) Also, the shroud needs a bracket to stabilize the shroud as 3 bolts on the bottom are not sufficient. I am very disappointed with the quality control and am amazed it was released in this condition.
so far I'am very pleased with this compressor and would recommend it.
