The middle of the sight window is correct. If over filled, the cylinder wall get less lubrication. This sounds counter intuitive but the reality is that the cylinder walls are splash lubricated. There is a protrusion on the rod cap that is designed to splash oil onto the cylinder walls. Over filling kills the splash. Less lubrication means higher temperatures and can cause seizing of the piston. Please rate my answer. Thanks!

How do I check the oil level


Ummm. If you looked in the sight glass, you just DID check the oil level. If you didn't see anything, then there wasn't any, or enough oil! Better add some before you run it again. The oil should be about half way up the sight glass, and don't overfill. Make SURE you use the RIGHT TYPE, according to the manufacturer's directions. The reason most compressors use special oil, is because the valves get MUCH HOTTER than the valves in an internal combustion engine. Don't think it doesn't matter. Get the right oil. And next time, don't ask a silly question like that.

Iv put half a litre if sewing oil in my industrial overlocker and still nothing showing in oil level window. Dnt want to overfill but shld i put more . where has the oil that I put in gone???


I suspect that you will not see an oil level in the sight glass because it is overfull. Find the drain plug and empty out the oil and restart the filling process

Oil capacity of kobalt 80 gal air compressor


You could do a little searching on the web, and answer your own question. You can buy a manual for $4.95 at:

But worse, you don't even need an answer to this question. Simply add oil until level is about half-way up the sight glass. And don't overfill. How simple is that?

I buy air compressor but how I put the oil


Of course, if this came with a manual.....it should clearly indicate the fill orifice. If it is like the one pictured, The end opposite the handle, where the metal end of the pump is exposed on top of the tank, has a filler hole with a filler cap pushed or threaded into it. Twist this off and add the oil until you see it rise to the half-way point on the sight glass. On brand new units, the filler cap will be taped with a small caution tag, warning you not to start the unit without first adding oil. Most units use a high performance, non-foaming, full synthetic 20-50w oil. If there is no sight glass, the filler cap will have a fill level indicator. Do not overfill!

Ttr50 oil blowing from vent tube


Hi, Lee oil level readings are taken when the engine has reached normal operating temperature and the usual suspects are:
1. Overfilled oil tank dipstick reading should at or below full.
2. If the sight glass is full you are running to much oil.
3. Excessive blowby caused by worn out piston rings.
4. Piston rings never properly seated.
5. Faulty breather valve or system.
6. Pinched or clogged breather line/hose.
7. Clogged or failed oil filter.
8. Contaminated oil dirt-rust-water etc.
9. Excessive oil foaming.
10. Wrong oil type not designed for your bike.

Just got a 1982 yamaha xj 650, where do I check the oil?


There is a sight glass on the right side below the clutch housing. Put the bike on it's maintenance stand and look at the sight glass, there is two marks that the level will fall between. Do not overfill as it will blow out the air box and clog your air filter.

What is the oil capacity on my early 90s klf 300c


Sherrywynne3, that model has a sight glass on the side of the motor, when the 4 wheeler is sitting level the oil should be half way up the sight glass. Be sure it is sitting on a level surface. DO NOT overfill.
Hope this helps,

Oil compasity


Hi! Have you found the sight/inspection glass near or around the oil filler or clutch cover? it is a small round piece of glass with two level bars half way up the side. After draining the oil (10/40 15/40) synthetic's best.
Keep the bike upright and slowly fill with oil watching the sight glass(Possibly with a torch) until it comes half way up then your done. Other than that if your oil cap is the type with dipstick/level carefully do the same as above until required level is shown on stick.
Good luck!
Hope this helps.
