were you hooked up in the engine compartment?
It should air up in 5 minutes or less,depending on your compressor.
I hate to ask,but,did you have your compressor turned on? check your hoes with a blow gun,to make sure your getting air through the hose.
It may have a dirt dauber in the hose?

Yep, using the engine compartment schrader valve. Compressor works. Hose clear. Using a 150psi compressor, with output set to 90psi at the time.

Ric, Somethings up with the external compressor, or the air chuck.

Bill, I understand why you would think so, but I use that compressor for all kinds of stuff, including topping off toad tires that same day. I will replace the schrader with another one anyway and see what happens.
