EAS How long to change heights?

I've recently rebuilt my valve block with the "O" ring kit, and added home made rubbers seals to the end of the solenoid valves.

Last night I fitted a brand new compressor (not a rebuild).

My question is now:

Look at the pressure guage in the morning (I have the EAS remote air and gauge kit) and see approx 110 - 120 psi on the guage.

This means the truck should rise almost instantly to the normal height?

Instead the access light stays on with the normal light blinking for about 4-5 minutes.

I have reset the EAS a couple of times. It seems IF it can't get to the correct height in a specified time it gives in and hard faults.

How long does an EAS sytem in good working order take to change heights?

It would seem the EAS driver is the next likely villian?

firstly, a big thanks to Paul the links are great and the pics make the process very clear. :thumb: :D
secondly, mine is doing the same thing as MoodyBlues. and the compressor (Thomas from Dennis @ RR) is seeming to run more than necessary.
i have replaced everything, Bilsteins, GenIII's, Driver, Pressure switch, Compressor, rebuilt valve block (someone else did it for me), have installed one of Andy E's Bypass kits (same as Pauls).
it maintains pressure no leaks, but is slow changing heights, read minutes not seconds. thought that was normal :doh:
as soon as the new 'o' ring/diaphragm kit and height sensor extensions get here from Dennis/RR i will redo the valve block myself and replace the height sensors with some 2nd. hand height sensors i have.

so my question is re the non-return valve how will i know if it's in backwards ? can anyone post a pic of right way wrong way ?.
is there anything else that will cause the same issue ?
thanks fellas.

to explain further...can't see how to edit previous post :?
Paul i did take note of the pic of non-return valve(s) but just a bit unsure of how it all works, can they be replaced out of sequence shown ? and does that cause the slow response ?
