Re: york spits oil

When I fould my york it only had 4 head bolts left in it so it may have problems but mine allso moves alot of oil.

You can switch the suction and discharge sides by removeing the head and valve body and puting them back on the other way around. At the same time it would be good to plug the oil passage between the suction side and the crank case. Most people do this with a small set screw from the bottom but since you will have the head off at the same time there is no reson not to do so from the top. In fact now that I think about it you may not gain anything by putting the suction up once that oil passage is closed.

As said my york blows a lot of oil over time it seem to have grown less so maybe I just had it over full. After pluging the oil passage I tried to put a vent in the side using a 1/8 inch pipe stuffed with filter material. This did not work since so much oil was flying around inside that oil was forced out of the vent. I have sinced pluged it and it still seems to work fine.
