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!

SOURCE: Oil type for air compressor

You can go to any Home Depot and buy compressor oil for your compressor. Your operators manual should tell you what the level should be, however if you don't have one, filling it with oil until it fills the glass tube about half way should be sufficient.

SOURCE: Craftsman 3 gal., 1.5 hp air compressor: won't

The compressor will not auto shut off until it reaches the preset pressure which is usually around 100-130 psi - your problem is leakage of air from the oil filler cap suggesting that you have a failed internal valve.

What level should the oil be in the view sight and what type of oil should be used to fill if needed?


Your oil level should be right in the middl of the sight glass as per the type of oil I'm sure Craftsman has there brand of oil they suggest. But any good quality compressor oil will work.

How much oil do I put in the compressor, what should the oil window read?


Half a glass or below to quarter glass and you should be fine. If you can see the oil level in the sight glass you are OK.... If you can't see it add to half a glass. Never over fill it that is just as hard on it as not enough....

Mac 5200--what type of oil and how much oil does it take?


Use air compressor oil only, motor oils like 10W-30 will leave carbon deposits on components and reduce their performance and compressor life. No manual lists an exact amount of oil to put in, they just say fill until the oil is half way up the sight glass. It's usually +/- one cup depending on the model, some take as much as one pint. Go by the sight glass for the best performance and to protect your compressor.

How much oil does the 2475 hold


A 2475 has no way to tell how much oil is in it other than removing the oil fill plug and looking unless a low oil level switch has been installed. You should fill this unit to the bottom of the oil fill plug threads. It's less than 2 quarts. IR does have a spec sheet that tells the exact amount. I don't have it available right now!

How do you check oil level on a u20 ir compressor do you check sight glass while machine is running or while in off mode?


Hi
No mate, you check it when the pump is not running.
Don't over fill it or it will pump oil into the tank.
That's bad news if you want to paint.
The middle of the sight glass is the correct level.
Don't let the oil get too low either.
The pump lubricates by a dipper on the bottom of the conrods. Too low an oil level starves the top end of oil and causes premature wear.

Dont know what kind of oil to put in my makita mac2400r compresso


If your compressor is used all day purchase synthetic blend compressor oil sold at lowes and other stores. It will increase the life of your machine. Sells for about $7. for 16oz. For normal use use standard air compressor oil sold at lowes, home depot and even at wal mart. Wal mart's Super Tech Air Compressor oil sells for less than $3. and works well. Do not use motor oil with detergent as this type of oil causes carbon deposits to build-up in the head and discharge hose which will eventually clog the check valve and lower efficiency. If you remove the plastic sight glass, use caution, because this part easily cracks. Purchase a spare sight glass and keep in your tool box. Good luck
