What size breaker do I need for a Ingersoll Rand Model TS4N5

Look at the motor tag. It should give you the run amps which I believe is about 22. What ever your amps are on the tag multiply by 1.5. If it comes up like my example (11 + 22 = 33) go to the next available size. Like 35 or 40. This should size the breaker to get the unit through start up.

What weight of lubrication do i use for this compressor...Ingersoll Rand TS4N5? And do I need to bleed the tank off before adding oil?

Yes it is always a good practice to bleed the tank down. there is a check valve in the top of the receiver tank that keeps air from blowing back Thur the system. However if it's leaking you will have pressure on the oil sump. As for type of oil use a 30 weight non detergent oil. Recommend using ir's t30 all season or another type made for air compressor's.

Can't get it to come on when it's cold.

Warm it up with a heat lamp, hair dryer etc. Release all air pressure from the tank first. Check your oil and use only compressor oil.

Connecting the compressor to a tank

You left that question rather vague. Are you asking what material? or What size? I normally would run one size larger pipe size than the outlet on the tank, unless the distance is great. You would connect to the tank outlet which is usually 1/2 way up the side of the tank. Use only black iron or copper pipe, plastic pipe is not strong enough for compressed air. There is some plasic tubing rated for air, but that looks sloppy and isn't inexpensive eitehr. Also put a "FRL" between the compressor and piping (FRL=filter regulator lubricator).

Wire size

I used to know all this stuff, the hardware store has a gauge guide to show you the correct size, i would guess that 8 would be ok, 10 would probably do it, hope this is right.

Air compressor line

Three basic methods:
1.Run power to the garage and reclocate the compressor there.
2.Use 3/4" steel or copper pipe run under ground to move the air without loosing as much pressure.
**3. Keep doing what you are doing but...add a portable air tank at the end of the line. I would suggest 11 gallon and add a large diameter 1/2" or 3/4" ID hose that is only 12 feet off of that to reduce the loss of pressure. I even ran a 100 pound propane construction size tank (after cleaning it and refitting it with large diameter pipe) Use a "cross" piple to get air into and out of the tank. Just remove whatever the portable tank has on it and create your own setup. This really works well.
