Hi, you may have already checked these, but just in case,
Over heating compressor:
Oil cooler is dirty
Clogged oil filter
Rotor blades sticking or broken
Insufficient oil in the unit
Defective thermostatic bypass valve

All compressor units generate a large amount of heat. In some instances the design of the unit=location and other possible variables may effect the ability of the unit to cool itself. A modification as long as it works, is safe, hasn't effected the performance of the unit, and hasn't voided the warranty, may be the best necessary solution.

Maybe you have residual coolant still in the lines from the leak you have already fixed and you just need to thoroughly blow them out? If the coolant is not just water maybe you need to rinse them out? Good luck!

Sounds like the cooler cylinder has reed problems and is not working correctly. The heat is typical in a reciprocating compressor. Both heads or cylinders should produce the same amout of heat. Pull the head on the cooler cylinder and check the reed valves in the head.
