SOURCE: air compressor won't run

Don't run it with the head off! the cylinder will just up and down with the piston and ruin the seals again. I have three Craftsman compressors in my shop and I've torn them all down at least twice. Rather than pay for the kit, I went to NAPA and got a roll of cork gasket material and made my own seals. They don't last as long but they work great.

I'd be willing to bet your seal it just too tight. I made this mistake the first time around too. it's not a very good design as the piston tilts through the stroke. I would try putting a light coat of heavy weight oil on the cylinder wall and move the piston by hand to lube the seal.

SOURCE: Oil capacity for craftsman air compressor circa 1978 model #106..

I have a 2hp craftsman air compessor with a two cylinder pump, Here is the info from my manual as far as oil capacitity:

Remove oil fill plug and slowly add
a compressor oil until it is even with the
top of the oil fill hole. NOTE: Do not
allow oil to be lower than 3/8"
from the top at any time. When filling
the crankcase, the oil flows very slowly
into the pump. If the oil is added too
quickly, it will overflow and appear to
be full. NOTE: Crankcase oil capacity is
approximately 16 fluid ounces.

I buy my compessor oil from Lowes in the tool department. It comes in 16oz and sells for about $3. I wouldnt worry about how many ounces it holds but rather that the oil level is to top of filler hole. Lowes also sells a synthetic oil for about $7 and is recommended for severe conditions (hot / cold / used all day). Good Luck!

The pump used on your compressor was incorporated into different designs thus needed access to oil fill from one side or the other. Part number for oil plug was std-220 or 27642, but you can use just regular standard pipe thread plug with square head. If the oil plug fits the other hole. Buy plumbing parts at Lowes. Good Luck

I just bought a used Craftsman air compressor at a garage sale...100PSI, twin cylinder, 1HP motor. Model # 106.154440. Runs fine, but wondered how to check the oil level in the compressor case and if it...


I have a Sears 106.154581 most likely like yours. You will find a small plug (fill hole) and slightly larger plug on side of pump close to bottom (drain hole). Fill compressor with compressor oil to top thread of fill hole. Oil should look rather clear with very little odor. Compressor oil is available at Lowes for about $3. Good luck

Over service craftsman air compressor with oil


Just find the drain plug and drain out some of the oil and put the plug back at the right time to get about the correct oil level.

The drain plug may be the sight window itself, if you can't find one.

If you need more help, post a comment.

Thanks,

Tim
