Re: OnBoard Air Problem!!
Ok, you can just buy an oil/water separator that will plumb on the output side of the compressor...it'll separate out the water/oil. If you get one with a manual drain valve, you can run a little rubber line from that valve back to the oil resorvoir for the oiler, and just barely crack the valve, so it will pressurize a bit and blow oil out the bottom of the separator, through the line, and back to the oiler. I had my York setup like that for a while. The only problem, then, is that the separator is taking all the nasties, pollution, dirt, dust, water...and the oil, and reinputting them in the system. It's sending water and dirt back through the compressor again. That's probably better than running the compressor dry, though. You've got one of those rotary compressors. You could try filling it with Slick 50 or something and running it a bit and then relubing it...or you could do the drip oiler thing (not too familiar with that to be honest), or you could do the separator plumbed into the oiler. They have those nifty separators with a manual valve at Sears, among other places. I'd reccomend against running it dry, though.
