O/T air compressors
 
Finally got around to trying out the air compressor I bought from my brother-in-law. It kicked on fine but then started lugging and the electric motor shut itself down.

It's been sitting for a year, so what sort of maintenance should I do before I try starting this thing up again. There's an oil filler for the compressor, so I'm assuming it needs some type of oil. Any special kind?

Thanks...
Keith

Re: O/T air compressors
 
Best bet would be to go to a compressor shop with the model # of your compressor and use what they recomend. I have a 50 plus year old Quincy compressor and it required a special oil different than what some modern compressors use. No problems so far.....
