Question about Honda Quincy 17 - Gallon Air Compressor with 5.5 Hp - G15H17PC3B
Nice compressor! The gx160 engine needs a little more than 1/2 quart. (.6 to be exact) Honda recommends changing oil every 6 mo. or 100 hours with 10-30 for cooler climates and 30 for temp ranges of 60 - 100 deg.. The pump needs about 12oz of compressor oil. I buy the oil at Lowes for less than three dollars. If you work in a very hot environment then use their synthetic oil, (about $7) it will take much more heat and you do not have to change it as often. It is not mentioned anywhere but there is a little air muffler on the pilot valve that discharges air when set pressure is reached that should be cleaned / checked. There is a screen that gets clogged causing heat. Good Luck.
