When the compressor is running, is air coming out the bottom of the solenoid condensate bowl (the one without the desiccant)?

So the good news is after replacing water separator and related solenoid, the desiccant filter, and adding a pressure gauge it appears all is well! It pressurized right up to ~115psi and cut off and hasn't turned back on. It gave a nice puff when...

Keep it.  You should have a special drawer or container for "Spare Parts".  If you don't, start one now.  You will tend to accumulate parts as you go along, and it's nice to have them all in one place for handy quick access.
