my leader hose is completely fine. doesnt leak or anything. see the head on the compressor cracked. with the comps. on that certain compressor just shoots air out of that crack. but it doesnt leak any air at all with the compressors off. so its just like im running one 380 at the moment.

If you overtightened the leader hose, then the head could very well have cracked. This is why we NEVER recommend that people use Teflon tape to seal the leader hose. Instead, use thread sealant and allow it to set before pressurizing.

You will need a new head assembly. The cost of a Head Rebuild Kit is $35.00 plus shipping from VIAIR. Please give me a call if you would like to order this part.

Until you repair this compressor, you should disconnect power to it. There's no reason to run a compressor that isn't adding to your air storage.
