Question about Air Tools & Compressors
I have a 7 hp. 150 psi. max craftsman professional air compresser, after using it for a while it starts smoking and oil soaks the filter after the fresh air filter. It soaks the top of the head also. Is the oil to thin ? It Runs good, what kind of oil should I be using ? The recomended sears oil dose not seam to be doing the trick, I think its to thin. I didnt over fill it, but it seams to be getting by the valves. This is the second one thats doing the same thing. Do I have a good back up under the work bench. It has a 60 gal.tank, and 240 volt motor.
I use valvoline sae30, and mine doesn;t smoke,
are the rings ok, ie does it bulid up to full pressure in normal time?
just one other thing, these have to be kept level, or they will smoke.
