Oil in blow by and oil in air tank


Recommended Posts

Just throwing this out there.....our rock vac ran with a reaaalllllyyyyy clogged air filter for a long time, and as a result the compressor started pulling oil and eventually needed rebuilt. Couldn't get air anywhere else, so it was pulling vacuum from its "crankcase" (don't know the property term, but you all should get it). Just did the rebuild (new rings and gaskets etc and a good cleaning) last week and it hasn't run it on site yet, but all seemed ok when we tested it in the shop.....

Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part....

The same thing can make a turbo pull oil thru the seals too, how much oil? Is it dripping out of the crankcase vent tube, or are there a few drops under it after it sits a while?
