What can I do with 8-gal air tank?

I'd like to incorporate an 8-gal portable air tank that I've had for years into my pancake air compressor, but the compressor shuts off at 135psi and the portable air tank is rated for 125psi. I've not found a way to lower the shutoff pressure on the porter-cable. Any ideas.

OK so what's the model # of the compressor?
How old is this tank?
10 Extra PSI is not likely going to blow up the tank, there pressure tested for way more then the max rating, my main concern is with possibly trying to reuse an older tank.
Ever seen what happens when one of them blows up?
Does the tank at least have a pressure relief valve?
