30W Non-Detergent. You can get it at hardware stores or tool stores. You can go with synthetic if you like, but if you don't run it too hard, regular oil is fine.

Compressor shuts down and will not allow enough pressure run machine

Sounds like the oil is low or the cooler is dirty. If that's not the case then you have a defective thermal valve.

My oil temp has gone from the ave of 140 to 152 in about a week. everthing else is normal

check oil level in unit as over full will over heat oil. It is possible that there is a failing bearing or bush. Check outlet pipes for blockages from carbon build up from un burnt sump oil.

Compressor has no oil pressure but seems to be running good

If you're sure its not just a bad oil pressure gauge, and there is no pressure, the oil pump is probably bad. If you don't run it hard, it may still last awhile, running more like a "splash lube" compressor. Still, if this is a pressure lubed Quincy, it's a good compressor - I'd fix the oil pump and it'll last for years.
