    elderjag, Oil out the intake dose not sound like the same issue with oil mixed in the compressed air discharge service line. The discharge line would be related to the vanes in the compressor, type of oil, viscosity, detergents, etc. The air intake may be related to the oil-bath air...

    Jim, Sounds good, you've been working on it awhile. It should give you years of service. The water in the exhaust pipe/manifold had seized a valve on mine at times before I put a bucket over the exhaust pipe. Good luck, Harold

    Should start with an AW46, "Made For Vane Compressors", like I mentioned in Post #2, depending on temperature zone. AW32 (thinner oil) for colder temperatures, AW48 (thicker oil) oil for warmer temperatures. Off course, if the vanes are worn, then a thicker oil would help in building pressure...

    Make sure you use hydraulic oil rated for these type of air compressors. Other oil's (with detergents, etc. and no or little Anti-Foaming agents) will cause foaming and lots of problems spaying all over the place. If you do not know what type of oil was put in or know it is of the wrong type...

    Joseph, There is a manual on Ebay at this time (24.50 + ship) and a quick search found another one online at Agrimanuals.com for 24.44 + ship. You might want to start a new thread and list your machines info for more attention to your specific machine on this site. Harold

    I guess a moderator has to review what I sent before, hope there are not duplicates posted. The exhaust manifold for the F162 engine if needed is: F400E502 and can be found with a search online for between 130.00-140.00

    Thanks a great deal for that info on the air pump, mine has many coats of paint but I know now where to look, been wondering for over 20 years. I tried to send some info this morning but may have not gone through, I will resend after this.

    And, Exhaust manifolds for the Continental F162, which is used in many applications from tractors, welders to equipment. OEM number f400e502 http://stores.ricksagparts.com/-strse-215/Manifold--MH-22/Detail.bok 129.00 (Located in Ohio, where I bought mine)...

    No problem, I have not seen many of these in good shape over the years and upgraded to the diesel mainly as I know I can get another diesel from surplus for a backup later on. The large plug (with glass inset) under the fill height plug in the front center is a gage indicating the oil...

    Lubrication info for IR GR-125 compressor I have one similar as yours and have used it for over 20 years so I should be able to help. The oil I have used has been a standard hydraulic oil like an AW-46 (depending on your temperature zone, very cold AW-32, very hot AW-68), I am in the Finger...
